Graduates should both be able to master the development and application of sustainable technologies and methods for an optimisation of agricultural production and know about the economic basics of the market development and the marketing of agricultural products. Specialisations are possible in the areas of plant production, animal production, land and food economy, horticulture, pomiculture and viticulture, organic farming and agricultural biology.
