Introduction to Agricultural Science
Agricultural Sciences is the study of the relationship between soils, plants and animals in the production and processing of food, ﬁbre, fuel and other agricultural commodities that have an economic, aesthetic and cultural value. Agricultural Sciences is an integrated science. It combines knowledge and skills from Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Social Sciences, Earth Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics and Economics. This subject must be seen within the holistic science framework rather than as an isolated science.
