About Agricultural and Agriculture
Agricultural science is similar to aquaculture (the water-based equivalent; see article on aquaculture). It is related to natural resource management, animal science, and pest management. Certain fields of engineering (agricultural engineering) and business (agricultural economics) incorporate aspects of agricultural science. Agronomy (crop science) is the plant-specific subfield of agricultural science.
