1 Introduction to Agriscience

2 1. Agriculture The production of food and fiber products through farming and forestry.

3 2. Food

4 3. Fiber Wool Hair Wood Products

5 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.

6 5. Agriscience The application of science and new technologies to the production of food and fiber products.

7 How does science connect to agriculture?

8 6. List Washington State’s top 5 agricultural products.

9 1) APPLES $1,745,620,000

10 2) MILK $1,061,952,000

11 3) WHEAT $974,516,000

12 4) POTATOES $ 685,063,000

13 CATTLE $ 580,957,000

14 How many different areas of science connect to wheat?

15 7. Technology The application of science to solve a problem.

16 8. Aquaculture Growing and management of living things in water.

17 9. Turf Grass used for decorative and also soil holding purposes.

18 10. Entomology The science of insect life.

19 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.

20 11. Agriculture Economics
Management of agricultural resources, including farms and agribusinesses.

21 12. Organic Food Foods grown without the use of chemicals

22 13. Agribusiness Businesses that deal with agriculture products.
Feed stores, Garden centers, Grain companies, Timber companies

23 14. Animal Science Applied sciences that involve animal growth, care, and management.

24 15. Integrated Pest Management
Different methods used together to control pests.

25 16. Renewable Natural Resources
Resources provided by nature that can replace or renew themselves.

26 17. Water Resources Conservation
All aspects of water conservation and management. Things we can do to protect our water resources.

27 18. Agronomy The science of field crops.

28 Circle Farm Usually 125 acres

29 Areal view of circle farms

30 Pivot Irrigation System



33 19. Biochemistry Chemistry applied to living matter.

34 20. Biology The basic science of plant and animal life.

35 21. All living and non-living things occurring naturally on Earth. 

36 22. Agricultural Engineering
The application of mechanical and other engineering principles to an agricultural setting.

Agricultural Engineer Average Salary Per Year $114,000

40 23. Soil Science The study of the properties and management of soil.

41 Soil is a Very Important Natural Resource. Why?
Soil is where plants grow that produce our food. Grows plants and trees that are habitat for wildlife.

42 Palouse Country – Eastern Washington








50 24. Biotechnology Management of the genetic characteristics transmitted from one generation to another and its application to modern living.


52 25. Chemistry Branch of science that deals with the characteristics of elements or simple substances.

53 What does chemistry have to do with agriculture?

54 26. Horticulture The science of growing and marketing fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants.

55 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.

56 28. Agricultural Marketing
Agricultural marketing covers the services involved in moving an agricultural product from the farm to the consumer.   Production (farming), harvesting, grading, packing, transportation, storage, food processing, advertising and sale.
