Undergraduate activities in agronomy prepare students to effectively serve agriculture, environmental sciences, related industries, and society. Students are provided a sound professional and scientific foundation; a broad education for constructive living in the community, state, and nation; and effective advising and extracurricular activities to develop leadership skills.
Agronomy provides many opportunities for basic and applied research. Demands for crop production systems which emphasize environmental safety, minimum soil erosion, ground water quality, decreased inputs, and provide adequate economic returns are one area of future need. Molecular biology and biotechnology have sparked a revolution in new approaches to genetically improve cultivated plants.
