Agriscience education is intended to enhance the image of agriculture by portraying to students that agriculture includes many careers that are not solely agricultural production or business-oriented. Such careers require a strong background in the biological and physical sciences - fiber technologist, water resource manager, plant geneticist, biochemist, etc.
