CAREER TYPE

Agriculture

Recent developments in entomology, plant pathology, and weed science in conjunction with advanced technologies such as remote sensing (RS), global positioning systems (GPS), geographic information systems (GIS), and variable rate technology (VRT), have the potential to greatly enhance agricultural profitability. In addition, the implementation of this technology can greatly improve environmental quality by reducing the volume of agricultural chemicals applied. The emergence of this technology and the increased demand for technically trained workers to support the technology makes it imperative that MDCC offer options through their Agricultural program to address this situation.
