In order to successfully fulfil their teaching tasks, students, future teachers need a certain base of technical skills in agriculture. The goal of this research was to estimate the level of agricultural literacy amongst students at Faculty of Teacher Education in Zagreb, as well as their knowledge on topics of Science and Society classes on agriculture. Its purpose is to recognize the topics on agriculture which students are not familiar enough with, in order to improve the programmes of certain courses and redefine the teaching results. It has been proven that 38.7% of examined students do not have the minimum knowledge on agriculture, while 22% are not familiar enough with the contents of Science and Society classes on agriculture. The paper researches the differences in students’ knowledge on agriculture and education contents, regarding their year of studies, their place of growing up and the type of high school they graduated from.
