This comprehensive new text welcomes today's learners to the diverse and exciting world of agriscience and prepares them for more advanced courses. Written by leaders in agriculture education, Principles of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources provides a fresh, visual, and highly applied introduction to the systems and concepts that define modern agriculture, including food systems and natural resources. Reading and critical thinking skills are developed by several features in each lesson, including “Before You Read,” “Analyze and Apply,” and “Thinking Critically.” All of these challenge learners to research topics in depth and to apply what they have learned.

  • STEM Connections appear frequently within lessons and challenge learners to apply AFNR concepts more generally.
  • Students can explore the various types of Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE) and the use of the Agricultural Experience Tracker (AET).
  • In support of FFA's mission, the text provides practical information on building leadership and communication skills.
