Agriculture - Plant and Soil Science

The Agriculture program offers several degree tracks for students which include Plant and Soil Science, Ag Business, Animal Science, and Precision Ag. Certificate, Associate in Applied Sciences degrees (AAS) and transfer options are available.

Agriculture Science combines the fields of biology and chemistry with a practical understanding of crop management. The primary objectives of the program are to offer students technical knowledge in the areas of soils and fertilizers, pests and control procedures, and crop management. These objectives are accomplished with lecture/discussion periods, lab exercises, and field trips to production enterprise areas. Many courses are available for distance learning for students. The Agriculture Science curriculum is reviewed by an advisory committee composed of local and regional industry members and adheres to national and state skill standards.
