Study on the lecture “Introduction to Agricultural Sciences” for freshman-class students
Yamatani, Yoji
A series of lectures on "Introduction to Agricultural sciences" was successfully undertaken in order to give freshman-class students a fundamental knowledge about "Agriculture" and "Agricultural sciences". Emphasis was laid upon the following topics; (1) actual and future aspects of Japanese agriculture, (2) social significance of agriculture in Japan, a highly developed country, (3) relationships of agricultural sciences with natural and social sciences and with the other fields of human culture. It was also emphasized that "Agricultural sciences" should be defined as technological sciences concerned with plant and animal productions and with their products.
