      ACTDEK044
      Investigate and make judgements on the ethical and sustainable production and marketing of food and fibre

      Elaboration
      • comparing the environmental impacts of intensive and extensive production systems and their contribution to food and fibre production
      • examining emerging production technologies and methods in terms of productivity, profitability and sustainability, for example vertical farming, recirculation technologies in aquaculture
      • examining the marketing chain of a range of agricultural products and outlining the effect of product processing and advertising on demand and price
      • investigating how digital technologies could be used to enhance food production systems, for example global positioning system (GPS) for managing animals, crop sensors or automated animal feeding or milking
      • investigating the interdependence of plants and animals in food and fibre production
      • taking account of animal welfare considerations in food and fibre production enterprises
