Title: Agriscience Defined


1
Agriscience Defined
  • Agriscience Applications
  • Basic Agriculture Awarness

2
Agriscience Defined
  • Agriculture- The activities related to the
    production of plants, animals and related
    processes.
  • Agribusiness- Refers to commercial firms that
    have developed from agriculture

The Three A's
  • Agriscience- The application of scientific
    principles to agriculture

3
Agriscience Defined
  • Technology- The application of science to an
    industrial or commercial purpose
  • High Tech- The use of electronics and
    state-of-the-art equipment to perform task

4
Fact!!!
  • A United States Department of Agricultural study
    forecast that job opportunities for graduates in
    agricultural and life sciences will exceed the
    graduates available in the coming years.

5
Areas of Agriscience
  • The Basic Sciences
  • 1) Biology- The study of living things
  • 2) Chemistry- Deals with elements and simple
    substances
  • 3) Biochemistry- Focuses on chemistry as it is
    applied over living things.

6
Applied Sciences
Definition- The application of one or more of the
basic sciences for practical (real life) purposes.
  • Aquaculture
  • Agricultural Engineering
  • Animal Science
  • Crop Science
  • Agronomy
  • Soil Science
  • Biotechnology
  • Horticulture
  • Hydroponics

7
The Science of Living Things
  • Objective Contrast agriculture, agriscience and
    agribusiness and their impact on industry

8
What is Agriculture?
  • The activities concerned with the production of
    plants, animals, and related supplies, mechanics,
    products, processing, and marketing
  • Production agriculture (farming) only accounts
    for 1/5th of the total agriculture jobs in the US

9
What is Agribusiness?
  • Refers to commercial firms that have developed
    out of agriculture
  • Take a moment to name three agribusinesses in
    your notes
  • John Deere
  • Monsanto
  • Tractor Supply

10
What is Agriscience?
  • Application of scientific principles and new
    technologies
  • Applied science
  • Uses basic sciences in practical ways
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics

11
Agriscience Examples
  • Agronomy
  • Uses biology and chemistry to produce and control
    crops
  • Cotton
  • Soybeans
  • Tobacco
  • Corn
  • Hay and Turf grass

12
Agriscience Examples
  • Entomology
  • Uses biology and chemistry to study insect life
  • Agriculture Engineering
  • Uses physics to develop new machines, tools and
    implements

13
Agriscience Examples
  • Biotechnology
  • Uses biology, genetics, and chemistry to modify
    or change organisms for a useful purpose

14
Scientific Method
  • Agriculture and other sciences use the Scientific
    Method to solve problems

15
Scientific Method
  • Identifies a Problem
  • Reviews Literature
  • Forms a Hypothesis
  • Prepare a Project Proposal
  • Design the Experiment
  • Collect the Data
  • Conclusions
  • Prepare a Written Report

16
Scientific Method
  • List in your notebook at least five problems that
    you think could be solved by science to make our
    world a better place
