If you’re excited to start your career working in agriculture and food systems, earning a two-year production agriculture degree will prepare you to enter the workforce directly after completion. This program will give you a strong foundation in the soil science and crop production systems that underlie all agricultural production and ensure healthy plant growth for the global food system.
At the Aims Fort Lupton campus in Weld County, the heart of Colorado farm country, you’ll gain an understanding of both large- and small-scale production, soil and growing conditions, and learn the fundamentals of planning, planting and managing crops.
Areas of study for the production agriculture degree include:
- Crop production
- Precision agriculture
- Farm and ranch management
- Farm equipment management
- Agricultural finance and marketing
- Global food supply, macroeconomics and human nutrition
- Soil science
If you plan to continue your education and earn a bachelor’s degree, you can enroll in the Soil and Crop Sciences Associate of Science degree program and transfer your Aims credits to a Colorado four-year institution.
