Introduction to Agriscience Terms Terms
1. Agriculture The production of food and fiber products through farming and forestry.
3. Fiber Wool Hair Wood Products
4. Science A systematic process of gaining knowledge about a particular field of study. Biology Chemistry Physics Earth Science These can be broken down even further into many subcategories.
5. Agriscience The application of science and new technologies to the production of food and fiber products.
How does science connect to agriculture?
6. List Washington States top 5 agricultural products.
1) APPLES $1,745,620,000
2) MILK $1,061,952,000
3) WHEAT $974,516,000
4) POTATOES $ 685,063,000
CATTLE $ 580,957,000
How many different areas of science connect to wheat?
The application of science to solve a problem. 7. Technology
Growing and management of living things in water. 8. Aquaculture
Grass used for decorative and also soil holding purposes. 9. Turf
The science of insect life. 10. Entomology
Forensic entomology is the application and study of insect and other arthropod biology to criminal matters. It also involves the application of the study of arthropods, including insects, arachnids, centipedes, millipedes, and crustaceans to criminal or legal cases. It is primarily associated with death investigations; however, it may also be used to detect drugs and poisons, determine the location of an incident, and find the presence and time of the infliction of wounds. Forensic entomology can be divided into three subfields: urban, stored- product and medico-legal/medico-criminal entomology.insectarthropodentomologyurbanstored- productmedico-legal/medico-criminal
Management of agricultural resources, including farms and agribusinesses. 11. Agriculture Economics
Foods grown without the use of chemicals 12. Organic Food
Businesses that deal with agriculture products. Feed stores, Garden centers, Grain companies, Timber companies 13. Agribusiness
Applied sciences that involve animal growth, care, and management. 14. Animal Science

Branch of science that deals with the characteristics of elements or simple substances. 25. Chemistry
What does chemistry have to do with agriculture?
The science of growing and marketing fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. 26. Horticulture
27. Food Science The application of basic sciences and engineering to study the physical, chemical, and biochemical nature of foods and the principles of food processing.
