Agriculture is the science and art of providing food and fiber products to consumers. Agriculture includes input industries necessary for production, manufacturing, processing, marketing and distribution. Agricultural education at the secondary level teaches and reinforces science, math, language arts and social science principles. Major areas of instruction in secondary agricultural education include: agricultural business, horticulture/ landscaping, and life sciences. Agriculture is the most fundamental and essential industry in the world, an industry that provides our entire society with food, clothing and shelter. This makes agricultural education an important component of a child's education.
