We educate future leaders to feed and fuel the world.
You won't find another crop sciences department with a history like ours. We started as the first Department of Agronomy in the United States. Today we are a nationally ranked plant sciences program with a rich history and exceptional academic reputation.

Our Purpose


We work with students, scientists, communities, and producers to increase food and fuel security. Through these collaborations, we develop new crop varieties, agricultural processes, and technologies that revolutionize food systems and the agriculture industry.
