Agriculture and forestry include sciences related to the study of animal and plant life and the management of resources cultivated and produced in these environments.

Agriculture degrees study the cultivation of soil for the growing of plants, fungi and animals, meant for human consumption and use. Agriculture studies deal with sub-fields such as agribusiness, agro-economics, agronomy, farming, animal husbandry, or agronomy.
