About Agriculture

Agriculture is responsible for the production of a range of resources, including food, fibres and fuels. It is an industry that keeps us clothed, fed and moving forward, and there are more career opportunities than just the traditional role of farmer.

The industry is subject to more variables than many, but increased technologies and research are helping to even out some of the vagaries of Mother Nature. You can be at the forefront of these industry developments by studying an online course in agriculture or rural science. Topics such as soil science, animal science, agronomy, land management and sustainability will equip you to work towards a more profitable industry.
