Joining a club or a team can enhance your education, grow your network, and give you unique experiences. Students and faculty advisors use these opportunities to make connections and grow knowledge.
Agronomy Graduate Student Association
The Agronomy Graduate Student Association (AGSA) is a collection of graduate students representing many disciplines within the Department of Agronomy. Our goal is to support and facilitate the efforts of graduate students involved in the study of agronomy by providing special opportunities which enhance educational and personal development.
Wheat State Agronomy Club
Undergraduate students in the Wheat State Agronomy Club are given the opportunity to connect with other students in the program through community events, football game activities, and collegiate competitions.
Plant Breeding and Genetics Club
The Plant Breeding and Genetics Club is an independent, interdepartmental group of graduate students working to promote interaction among faculty, commercial, and students at Kansas State University to further development and research in plant breeding and genetics.
Collegiate Competition Teams
Collegiate & NACTA Crops Team
The crops contest consists of four divisions: laboratory practical, agronomic exam, math practical, and plant and seed identification.
Soils Judging Team
Students compete in two event categories: an individual contest and a group judging contest.
Weed Science Team
Four events in the contest include weed identification, farmer problem solving, written calibration problems and team field sprayer calibration, and identification of herbicide symptomology. Students at the undergraduate level and the graduate level may compete in national competitions.
Forage Quiz Bowl
In the competition, a moderator asks the student teams questions about forage production, management and utilization. The questions are chosen by a panel of forage experts. Topics include forage and grassland history, plant physiology, forage quality, grazing management, poisons and toxicity, hay/silage, and identification of forages and weeds.
