What is Agriculture?

Agriculture is a field with growing opportunities. Today’s technology is fueling changes in this staple of the American landscape, including precision agriculture and related agribusinesses. At the same time, old-fashioned farming is a budding industry as more people shop for food at farmers’ markets or want to grow their own. Whether you are interested in commercial agriculture, growing your own food, starting an agricultural business, or work agricultural implements, OCTC’s Agriculture Program could be for you. The program offers curriculum blended with hands-on experiences that provide graduates with a strong foundation in animal science, crop science, current issues, and more.  In addition to the basic classes, the student selects one of three options to further support their career goals – Agronomy, for students who are interested in crop sciences, Agriculture Business/Marketing, for students who want to start a business or go into sales or marketing, and Agriculture Technology, for those who want to learn the ins and outs of the implements used in agriculture today.
