    Abstract

    The pressure of change within agriculture confronts farmers with regularly upcoming and new challenges: the structural changes as well as technical, economical and ecological improvements increase the requirements for the farm manager’s knowledge. Thus, being successful in profession and business is not only a matter of qualified and fundamental professional knowledge but also of the constant participation in vocational trainings (N.N. 2006). Therefore the trend of lifelong learning, being already realised and traced in other fields of economic, has now also become a must in the business of agriculture (KRUSE 2003).
