This course explores the physical and chemical nature of soil as well as the relationships between soil, plants, animals, and agricultural practices. Students examine properties of soil and land and their connections to plant and animal production. Using knowledge of scientific protocols as well as course content, students develop an Agriscience research program. The result of this research program is an in-depth research and experimentation paper that is technically written, based on scientific protocol, and cited using APA formatting. Additionally, students develop and present a capstone soil management plan for agricultural producers, demonstrating their knowledge of the soil chemistry content learned throughout the course.
