Agriscience and Technology
With its seamless integration of biology, physical science, technology, and agriculture, this up-to-date edition presents the latest agriscience concepts while giving students a comprehensive introduction to the field. Divided into five sections (biotechnology, food and fiber technology, energy and power technology, computer-aided management, and environmental technology), the text covers a wide range of current topics, from genetic engineering to low-input sustainable agriculture. Through the career section in every chapter, students learn how "new concepts" in science and technology can be applied to exciting careers in agriscience.
