AgriScience is a student- and teacher-friendly book that blends physical and biological science with the fundamentals of agriculture. Since agriculture is largely applied science, this is a highly useful and practical approach. Principles of science are presented and reinforced using agricultural applications.
AgriScience, Fifth Edition, represents new student- and teacher-friendly approaches that blend science with the fundamentals of agriculture. Since agriculture is applied science, this is a highly useful and practical approach. Principles of science are presented and reinforced using agricultural applications. Of course, a broad interpretation of agriculture is used that includes crop and animal production as well as horticulture, forestry, marketing, and processing. The contents of AgriScience relate science information to useful applications in plant and animal production. Some things that sound complicated in the science classroom are used every day in the agriculture classroom. Practical applications result in academic connections that reinforce studies in related academic classes. This edition has updated and expanded content in a number of areas. The contents of the book have been reshaped to incorporate the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR) Career Cluster and the eight career pathways that are included.
Textbook on how technology has affected agriculture over the years.
This basic text with larger than usual type, simple language, and essentially traditional content offers beginning horticultural students an overview of the field, scientific basics, greenhouse management and production, nursery management and production, floriculture products, landscaping, turfgrass, food crops, and tools and technology. The editors cite such improvements in this updated edition (previous edition: 1997) as more photographs, increased technological applications, greater emphasis on environmentally-friendly approaches, some rewritten sections, and a new chapter on horticultural business management.
