    Agriscience III is an advanced study in Agriscience based on the local agricultural workforce and the economic needs of the community. The major areas of study should include personal development skills, animal systems, plant systems, environmental issues, and mechanical skills. Mathematics, science, English, biology, and human relations skills will be reinforced in the course. 

    All courses reinforce English, biology, and human relations skills. Work-based learning strategies appropriate for this course are school-based enterprises, field trips, and internships. Supervised agricultural experience (SAE) programs and the FFA leadership activities are integral components of the course and provide many opportunities for the practical application of instructional competencies.
