The agriculture program at Ivy Tech is taught by instructors with real-world experience, who are outstanding in their fields.  Students get to use state-of-the-art greenhouses with an aquaponics system that incorporates tilapia culture with vegetable production, as well as a field lab used for hybrid and variety comparisons, soil fertility analysis and machinery evaluation.

Classes are taught with a cohort model that includes many extra-curricular activities including soil judging teams and community engagement.  To give you even more real-world learning experiences the Agriculture program also has several industry partnerships statewide including Perdue Farms, Syngenta, CIE Ethanol, Bell Aquaculture, USDA, FFA and Pioneer Hybrids to name a few.
