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.
