Students enrolled in Fields Crops Technology and Precision Agriculture Technology participated in the harvesting.

The Field Crops Technology Program is designed to provide students with a common core of management skills and additional training related to the production of field crops, weed, insect and plant disease control. The Precision Agriculture Technology program prepares students with a common core of management skills and additional training in advanced technologies pertaining to the agriculture industry.
