In this path of study, the agriculture and horticulture production systems are analyzed and evaluated as a part of the value chain with regard to their sustainability. As an outcome, optimization strategies target all three major areas of sustainability: environmental stewardship, economic profitability, and social responsibility. Key global issues including climate change with changing weather conditions, increasing land degradation, and loss of biodiversity will be dealt with as well as the questions of world nourishment, the strong price fluctuations for agricultural products, and revenue assurance for farmers and gardeners in a globalized world. At the same time, production systems of different value chains from food production to ornamental plant production to renewable raw materials production are looked at and evaluated with different approaches and methods regarding their sustainability in their environmental, economical and social terms. The resulting ethical issues are also addressed in the courses.
