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? EX: WHAT CHEMICAL SHOULD I USE?  BASIC SCIENCE ANSWERS THE QUESTION “WHY DOES IT DO WHAT IT DOES?” EX. WHY CHEMICAL WORKS? 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
