Then, our vocational school increased the number of programs to five with “Animal Fattening” and “ Seed Production” programs, in 1995-1996 and 1996-1997 educational years. In 2003-1004 educational year, “ Management Organization” and  “Farm Management” programs had been named “ Agricultural Management”, but this program closed in 2008-2009 educational year. However, in the same year a new program that “Organic Agriculture” was opened and the number of program didn’t change. Before the start of 2009-2010 educational year, the name of program “Animal Fattening” was changed with “Cattle and Small Animal Husbandry” and the name of program “Arboriculture” was changed with “Horticulture”   with the Council of Higher Education’s decision.
