Discover the exciting world of agriscience with this newly-updated edition of a resource that has proven valuable for middle school students across the country. Exploring Agriscience, fourth edition uses the same solid approach that made previous editions so popular: content that centers on an examination of the agricultural industry, while also highlighting the role that scientific concepts play in agricultural processes. The book's comprehensive coverage includes everything from the history of agriculture, soils, plant structures, and entomology, to floriculture, nursery and landscaping, row crops, biotechnology, and even careers. Each chapter contains an insert that provides a description of an FFA-sponsored event that relates directly to the chapter topic, reinforcing the most important concepts. With hands-on activities designed to encourage students to relate the book's coverage to its real-world applications, this is the perfect book for a first agriculture or agriscience class.
