AGRC 111 offers an introduction to agricultural systems, with a focus on sustainability in a changing environment. Current agricultural challenges and issues will be used to highlight and illustrate the interactions between plant, animal, microbial, human and environment components. The soil/plant/environment interface is emphasized. Management decisions affecting agricultural systems, cropping and land use are examined both regionally and globally. Students will also exercise the research process using scientific literature to investigate a hypothesis.
