Agricultural Studies

Agriculture is essential to all aspects of life. It provides the food to nourish populations, the feed needed for animals, the fiber for clothes, and the fuel to power industry. Agricultural products are the very basis for what builds your communities and grow your economies, but that’s not all, a strong agricultural sector contributes to increased political stability.

Agriculture is the art and science of cultivating soil, growing crops, raising livestock, processing products, and getting them to market. However, agriculture is much more than farming. It’s business. It’s science. It’s engineering. It’s energy. It’s entrepreneurship. It’s information. It’s technology.
Ummah Academy is dedicated to showcasing the many facets of agriculture: how technology and communications are transforming the agricultural sector, how to determine where you fit along the agricultural value chain, how you can help advance the agricultural economy, how to address the main challenges facing agripreneurs, and you can support agriculture locally.

This guide provides you with a plan for facilitating the Ummah Academy Online Course, “Agripreneurship – A Path to the Healthy and Sustainable Future.” Before you begin to work through this cours, follow instructions on how to plan and organize a facilitated course session.
