Farm to Fork—A Panoramic View of Agriculture

An online journey connecting agricultural science and your food. Go on a virtual tour of farms. Study how farm practices impact the environment. Learn how modern livestock techniques impact the well-being of farm animals. Visit the DNA analysis labs that help keep food safe. Tour the soil test laboratories helping farmers apply the optimal amount of fertilizer. Understand how the food pantry system works to help the food insecure. Visit a century-old experiment linking fertilizers to crop yields. Think critically about the impact of local food on the local economy. Explore the realm of famine and politics. Do all of this and more in one online course to gain a panoramic view of agriculture—from the farm, to the fork.

There are two versions of the course: one non-credit version open to the public for free, and one credit offered as a standard course for OSU credit.

A copy of the syllabus for the non-credit version is here.
