The teams within of the School of Primary Industries are as follows: Agriculture and Rural Operations (Top End); Conservation and Land Management (Top End); Horticulture and Aquaculture (Top End); and Primary Industries (Central).
The School also includes Katherine Stud and Farm. These venues service our regional and remote clients and provide enhanced training opportunities for a diverse range of students, communities and industry.
