Program Description

The Agribusiness Technology program is designed to enable students to find employment in the areas of production agriculture and agribusiness. Instructional areas include crop production, animal production, management, sales and marketing. Students will be provided with a combination of classroom instruction and agriculture/cooperative work experience.

Since agriculture and its supporting businesses employ about 25 percent of the labor force in the United States, there is a definite need for program graduates in the area, state and nation.
