Modern agriculture is complex and only individuals with thorough preparation in agriculture can effectively participate and make a significant contribution in this sector. The logical basis of a specialized degree programme in agriculture is the need to produce a vital mass of specialized professionals in agriculture who can be producers and provide the required skills for research, innovation and management of crises in agriculture.
