Why Should You Choose Crop Production?
The Crop Production program combines classroom teaching and hands-on learning to develop the skills students need to manage field crops and the soils that sustains these crops. Students enroll in an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) professional-technical degree. This degree is designed for students who will start a job in the agricultural industry. A crop production degree enables students to find jobs in Agronomy, Farm Management, Agricultural Supplies, Pest Management and Natural Resources Conservation.

LBCC Student Organic Farm
Established in the Spring of 2004, the organic garden covers nearly two acres. The crops are planted, tended, and harvested by LBCC students. During the school year, the produce is prepared and served in the LBCC restaurants, while over the summer, a student-run courtyard market offers fresh-picked produce to students and staff.
The farm is divided into fields in which spring, summer, fall, and winter crops are raised. Students use methods such as crop rotation, inter-cropping, cover cropping, and the incorporation of organic matter to maintain soil fertility and ecological diversity. These practices support non-toxic sustainable production and protect crops against plant diseases and insect pests.
