Department of Soil and Agri-Food Engineering

BACHELOR (LICENCE) IN

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES IN – SOIL AND ENVIRONMENT (A. B. SC.)

Goal

The scope referred to as the “agri-environment” includes soil, plants and animals who exchange resources in large biogeophysical cycles (water, carbon, nitrogen, etc.). These activities concern the good agri-environmental practices related to land use, conservation and protection of soil and water, recovery of crop residues, livestock manure and other fertilizers, the protection of shorelines and watercourses and the rational use of pesticides. The agri-environmental practices intended to minimize the negative effects of agricultural production on the environment.

The program includes joint training in economics and management and in the three main agricultural fields or soil and the environment, crops and animal production. Specialized training in soil and environment (genesis, soil physics, soil microbiology, climatology, pesticides and environment, etc.) will also introduce you to the sustainable land use and agricultural production. She will give you an overview of production systems and an understanding of the agricultural reality for you to become a competent and professional agrologist.

Abilities

Love nature and science. Wanting to apply science to analyze and solve problems. Be versatile, loving transmit knowledge and counsel people. Having the ability to communicate and work in teams. Be autonomous, have the entrepreneurial knowledge and show initiative.

Oppotunity

The agronomist specializing in soil and environment is asked to intervene mainly in agricultural areas but also in urban and suburban environments. You will accompany farmers in their agri-environmental initiatives and be promoting the adoption of these more environmentally friendly practices. The establishment of windbreak hedges and riparian management is an example which you may participate. You also will apply the regulatory framework for agri-environment by making inspections and audits.

The agronomist practice a profession exclusive exercise that involves the application, communication, extension, education or development of principles, laws and agricultural processes. You will be able to assume different functions with competence in relation to the agronomic consulting service. Employment prospects are excellent, and very competitive salaries.
