Interested in combining your interests in agriculture and business into a single degree? Our students benefit from both classroom instruction and practical laboratory experience, which includes use of the extensive facilities at the college farms. You'll learn to understand the income and expense sources of varied agricultural businesses; prepare and assess an agribusiness business plan; understand marketing principles; delve into small business management, including payroll and human resources; and competently represent agriculture in all venues.
