Report of the Action Committee on Plant and Soil Sciences.
Schein, Martin W.
Problems in agriculture in ten or twenty years will be dramatically different from present ones. The solutions to these problems will require the development of new agricultural or agriculturally related professions such as ecological engineering, space biology, marine agriculture, systems agriculture and industrial agriculture. Dealing with these problems will require an interdisciplinary approach with a more intensive study of basic biological, physical and mathematical sciences. The importance of social sciences and the liberal arts curriculum is acknowledged. A detailed recommended program for plant and soil science majors is presented. The report outlines areas of subject matter concentration in terms of lower division and upper division courses. The proposal is for a four-year college curriculum. (BC)
