From the Teacher

From the beginning, God commanded man to be fruitful, to fill the earth, and to subdue it. This is one of the goals of Christian agri-scientists all over the world. How can we make our food more nutritious? Can plants really communicate with each other? These are just two of the questions tackled in Introduction to Agriscience. From studying the complexity and secrets found in corn roots to examining how to safely increase our food supply, this course examines how agri-scientists are at the forefront of improving agriculture, food production, and the conservation of natural resources. In this course, you will learn about the innovative ways that science and technology are put to beneficial use in the field of agriculture. You’ll also learn more about some of the controversies that surround agricultural practices as nations strive to provide their people with a more abundant and healthy food supply.
