The Agriculture Education program provides the interested student with related courses designed to provide the background necessary to prepare for an agricultural or agribusiness occupation. Emphasis is placed on developing knowledge and skills in agribusiness, livestock, crop production and management, agricultural mechanics, conservation and horticulture.

Through agriculture classroom and laboratory instruction, students are taught the basic concepts and technical skills needed to succeed in agribusiness and agricultural production. Instruction is focused on solving practical problems facing agriculture today. Occupational experience is obtained on the farm or in a non-farm agricultural setting.
