Course Description:

This course is for the student who will either go back to the farm, or have a career that will generate significant interactions with farmers. The biggest question farmers face is Can they make a living or survive economically? Graduates who will be farming or working closely with farmers need to understand the issues that affect agriculture, be familiar with the new technologies producers will be confronted with, and sensitive to the pressures and tensions that challenge farmers.  This is impacted by economic, political, and cultural factors, as well as science and technology.  Students in this course will address these interrelated issues with an integrated approach.
