Agriculture and Environment degrees

Overview

Agriculture is the primary source of food, fibre, and many other products essential to human life. Sustainable agriculture is an approach to food production that seeks to minimise the negative environmental impacts of farming while maximising the positive social and economic benefits.

Environmental science is concerned with the ecological impacts of agricultural practices, including soil erosion, water pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Agricultural science and environmental science work together to develop sustainable farming practices that minimise the negative impact of agriculture on the environment.
