1 USING APPLIED SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

2 DEFINITION OF AGRISCIENCE
IT IS THE USE OF SCIENCE IN PRODUCING -FOOD -FIBER -SHELTER APPLIED SCIENCE ANSWERS THE QUESTION “WHAT SHOULD I DO?” EX: WHAT CHEMICAL SHOULD I USE? BASIC SCIENCE ANSWERS THE QUESTION “WHY DOES IT DO WHAT IT DOES?” EX. WHY CHEMICAL WORKS?

3 TECHNOLOGY PRACTICAL USE OF SCIENCE-USUALLY INCREASES FOOD PRODUCTION
DEVELOPMENT OF BST IN DAIRY TO INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF MILK ONE COW WILL PRODUCE *ADVANTAGE - LESS COWS NEEDED *DISADVANTAGE - LESS DAIRY FARMERS NEEDED

4 FOUR AREAS OF SCIENCE MATHEMATICS - WEIGHT TO BUY AND SELL A PRODUCT; LAND SURVEYING PHYSICAL SCIENCE - NONLIVING MATTER EARTH SCIENCE/CHEMISTY/PHYSICS EXAMPLE ACCURATE WEATHER/FERTILIZER/LOADING RAMPS

5 FOUR AREAS CONT. LIFE SCIENCE - STUDY OF LIVING THINGS INCLUDES BOTONY AND ZOOLOGY WAYS TO MAKE PLANTS AND ANIMALS GROW BETTER SOCIAL SCIENCE -BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE: WHY PEOPLE RESPOND AS THEY DO TO FOOD

6 AGRONOMY DEALS WITH THE STUDY OF PLANTS AND HOW THEY RELATE TO THE SOIL PURPOSE IS TO IMPROVE CROP PRODUCTION AND CONSERVE NATURAL RESOURCES

7 HORTICULTURE SCIENCE OF GROWING FRUITS,NUTS AND VEGETABLES
ALSO INCLUDES FLOWERS AND ORNAMENTAL SHRUBS AND VINES

8 FORESTRY SCIENCE OF GROWING AND USING FORESTS
TWO TYPES OF FORESTS : CULTURED - TREES ARE PLANTED AND CARED FOR NATIVE - TREES THAT GROW WILD;USUALLY A MIXTURE OF TYPES

9 ENTOMOLOGY BRANCH OF ZOOLOGY THAT DEALS WITH INSECTS AND RELATED SMALL ANIMALS INCLUDES BENEFICIAL INSECTS -HONEYBEE HARMFUL INSECTS - CORN BORERS

10 ANIMAL SCIENCE AREA OF AGRISCIENCE DEALING WITH THE PRODUCTION OF ANIMALS FOR FOOD ANIMALS USED FOR MEAT INCLUDE CATTLE, HOGS, SHEEP, GOATS, BISON, EMUS AND LLAMAS

11 POULTRY SCIENCE AREA DEALING WITH RAISING CHICKENS AND RELATED FOWL(BIRDS) MOST IMPORTANT - CHICKENS OTHERS INCLUDE - TURKEYS, DUCKS, GEESE, PHEASANTS, QUAIL, AND GUINEA

12 AQUACULTURE IS THE SCIENCE OF WATER FARMING
DEALS WITH BOTH AQUATIC PLANTS AND ANIMALS EXAMPLES OF PLANTS - WATER CHESTNUTS AND WATER CRESS EXAMPLES OF ANIMALS - TROUT AND ALLIGATORS

13 ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE
INVOLVES WAYS OF WISELY USING AND PROTECTING THE THINGS AROUND US EMPHASIS IN ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE INCLUDE THE AIR, SOIL, WATER, WILDLIFE, NATIVE PLANTS AND MINERALS

14 MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY
INVOLVES THE USE OF MACHINES AND EQUIPMENT TO DO WORK EXAMPLES ARE DEVELOPING : TRACTORS, GREENHOUSES, PONDS, HARVESTING EQUIPMENT,ETC.

15 RESEARCH AGRISCIENCE RESEARCH IS CARRIED OUT BY LAND-GRANT UNIVERSITIES, AGRICULTURAL AGENCIES, AGRIBUSINESSES AND OTHER GROUPS A FEW FARMS DO RESEARCH

16 NEW AREAS OF AGRISCIENCE
BIOTECHNOLOGY GENETIC ENGINEERING REMOTE SENSING LASER TECHNOLGY COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE RADIATION

17 BIOTECHNOLOGY EXAMPLES OF BIOTECH : DEVELOPING VACCINES
PRODUCTS THAT WILL CAUSE LIVESTOCK TO PRODUCE MORE MEAT ON LESS FOOD DEVELOPING BACTERIA THAT WILL CONSUME WASTES

18 GENETIC ENGINEERING DEVELOP CROPS THAT ARE INSECT RESISTANCE
DEVELOP A TOMATO THAT IS ROT RESISTANCE DEVELOP A CROP PLANT THAT KILLS THE WEEDS AROUND THEM

19 REMOTE SENSING INVOLVES GATHERING AND RECORDING DATA FROM A GREAT DISTANCE WEATHER INFORMATION RESOURCE LOCATION CROP PESTS PROTECTING NATURAL RESOURCES

20 LASER TECHNOLOGY A DEVICE THAT PRODUCES A SPECIAL KIND OF LIGHT
LAND FORMING MONITORING PROCESSES SCANNING - SUPERMARKETS

21 COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE
USING COMPUTERS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS IN AGRISCIENCE DESIGNING FACILITIES DEVELOPING PRODUCTS MODELING NATURAL RESOURCES

22 RADIATION USE OF RADIATION
PREVENTING SPOILAGE OF FOOD BY KILLING BACTERIA THAT MAY BE ON OR IN A FOOD PRODUCT KEEPING INSECTS OUT OF STORED FOOD

23 ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH AGRI/TECHNOLOGY
FOOD SAFETY POLLUTION CONSERVATION OF RESOURCES HUMAN RIGHTS : EXAMPLE - FOOD PRODUCTS SHOULD NOT BE IMPORTED FROM A NATION WHERE PESTICIDES ARE BEING USED IMPROPERLY
