Agriculture Business

Why Study Ag Business at RC

There has been a drastic change in the agriculture industry; now less than 2% of the population is directly involved in production agriculture. Farmers and ranchers are looking at a new approach: Agribusiness. Most agriculture jobs are in the business and management sectors, because agriculturalists realize that it is vital to be involved in all aspects of operation.

Reedley College will help prepare you for a fast paced career in the business world. Classes are geared to help you grasp the core concepts of business and agriculture management. You will be prepared for careers in agriculture economics, international trade and sales and farm management.
