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.

ADDITIONAL POLICY

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.
