As an academic field, agriculture looks at the cultivation of land, breeding of animals, and the growth and harvesting of plants, amongst other things. These are all important processes as they provide food, fibres, medicinal properties and other products to sustain and enhance life.

The field of agricultural science is also fast developing, and has a great impact on the climate and environment.

You may also be required to study some business models as well, such as mathematics, humanities and economics. These will give you a well-rounded insight into the ethics and science of the agricultural industry.
