Home > Agriculture
Agriculture is one of the largest sectors of Indiana’s economy with a $20 billion annual impact, and as this sector becomes more high-tech, the need for trained college graduates in agriculture is increasing.

The agriculture program at Ivy Tech Community College engages students in hands-on activities in and outside of their classrooms while preparing them for real-world agriculture careers.  The program focus is primarily in the areas of: Animal Science, Plant & Soil Science, Agriculture Equipment, and Agriculture Sales and Business.  Students are exposed to various areas in the agriculture industry through field experiences and professional guest speaker presentations.  To enhance the student experience, the agriculture program has partnerships with industry organizations such as: The Indiana FFA Organization, John Deere, Case IH, Indiana Department of Education (dual credit opportunities with high schools teaching agriculture), and the United States Department of Agriculture.
