The Business of Farming
There are two sides to successful farms; the production side and the business side. Some people raise livestock, horses, etc. in barns and some people plant crops in fields. Some farmers obviously do both.
The Associate of Science (A.S.) degree with a concentration in Agriculture Business is offered at our Fayetteville campus as part of the Agriculture Science 2+2 with Tennessee State University (TSU). Graduates have the option to complete their bachelors degree with TSU at Motlow’s Fayetteville campus.
Agricultural business, also known as agribusiness, is the farming, management, production, and marketing of agricultural commodities, such as livestock and crops. The agricultural business field includes resource management, farming, conservation, ranching, and sales. As technology has progressed and markets have become increasingly global, agricultural business has developed to meet and solve high-tech farming needs and problems.
The A.S. prepares students for transfer to a four-year institution. Students will gain a basic understanding of the management, marketing, production, and farming of livestock and crops.
