Title : The important of english for academic and career success in agriculture


Many years ago the main concern for agricultural colleges was how to take education to farms. But, today things have changed. The agricultural study has made such vast strides in the past decades and along with its growth, there has been an extraordinary growth of agricultural writing. Today the agricultural colleges are seeking to increase their students' numbers and also to improve the curriculum to benefit the students. On the other hands, the farmers and those involves in agribusiness are also interested in attending training courses organized by universities and reading general and scientific papers in the field of agriculture. Therefore, there is a need to provide interested people in countries where English is a second or foreign language with enough knowledge to read scientific materials which are mostly in English. In fact, there is a need to understand the needs and also more collaboration between the departments of agriculture and departments of English. Many of the books, bulletins, and magazine articles in this field are written by people with no linguistics knowledge and without considering target needs. Designing and developing these educational materials must be under the supervision of both departments of agriculture and English. Thus, there is a need for the departments of English to keep pace with the growth of agricultural writing.
