A recent op-ed in the New York Times highlighted the need for new technologies in agriculture and the horticultural field.
The unique CTE program at UAGC allows for students to engage and innovate in the type of new and improved techniques and technologies that the NYTimes is calling for.
More than simply exposing urban students to the process of food production, which is worthwhile in itself, these students are also working to innovate the ways foods are produced.
Careers in this field will be a major area of growth in the coming decade, as the research funding indicates.
Being at the forefront of this area is an exciting opportunity for any student, and we are thrilled UAGC students are innovating forward.
