Agriculture, like most of our world, has changed dramatically and is infinitely more complex than most people can imagine. Today, most agriculture is seen as a technology- based industry that includes production, agriscience and agribusiness. Not only are agriculture graduates in demand to produce food, but also to package and transport it, market it, regulate its production, and finance it. Agriculture graduates play key roles in monitoring our lakes and streams and planning for the efficient and safe future use of our water supply, land, and other natural resources.

Agriculture is a challenging, multi-faceted industry. It also is the production of food and fiber, maintenance of our water, and wise use of our natural resources. People who choose to make agriculture a career, are choosing to make a difference in the American way of life.
