Industry that manufacture agricultural
Machinery and equipment and is involved in the procurement and processing of Agri-products.
It also studies banking activities for financing and developing farms, research and
Development for the purpose of improving the capacity and quality of farm products and so
On. Agricultural science students can specialize in agricultural production and livestock.
