Agriculture has the single greatest influence on our landscape. The agricultural industry is primarily concerned with the production of basic foodstuffs on farms, but also includes the supply industry for farming, such as fertilisers, seeds, animal feed and machinery.

Agriculture is becoming increasingly integrated with other sectors of the food chain such as processing, distribution and retailing, to form the agri-food industry.

Highland cattle are of course synonymous with Agriculture in Scotland – their long wavy coats not only ensure they are hardy enough to survive a Scottish winter, but make them very photogenic as well!

You can find out much more about Agriculture courses and expertise at SRUC by taking a look at our website.
