Our Academic Programs
ABOUT THE AGRONOMY PROGRAM
The mission of the Department of Agronomy is to generate, integrate and apply knowledge about crop plants that are grown for food, feed and the general benefit of humankind. Through the integration of teaching, research and extension/outreach efforts, we find and disseminate answers to problems and discover opportunities concerning efficiency and sustainability of production, improvements in quality, and methods for safe and environmentally-sound practices.

The vast majority of our graduate students are awarded research assistantships to fund their education. These assistantships come directly from the mentoring faculty; as a result, space in our graduate program is extremely limited.
