  2. semester – conventional farming apart from cultivation and breeding-focused subjects, also agricultural biotechnologies
  3. semester – organic farming presents knowledge on planning sustainable systems of agricultural management, cultivating plants and breeding animals within ecological agriculture as well as on the processing of bioproduction at farms, social agriculture and agrotourism.
  4. semester – landscape management addresses questions concerning landscape planning, regional management and soil erosion protection.
