Agriculture Technician Careers

Successful individuals employed in agriculture occupations need a basic understanding of industry specific financial operations, goal-setting, human relations, crops, soil management, as well as livestock fundamentals.

This diploma is embedded within the Agribusiness Science & Technology Associate degree. This means that Agriculture Technician graduates have the opportunity to also complete their associate degree with one more year of college.

Designed as a shared program with Moraine Park Technical College (MPTC) and Lakeshore Technical College (LTC), classes may be offered in traditional classroom settings or using interactive television to link instruction between LTC’s School of Agriculture and the MPTC campuses of Fond du Lac, Beaver Dam, and West Bend.
