Crop and soil sciences is the science and technology of using plants for food, fuels, feed and fiber, and turfgrass for lawns, golf courses and sports fields.
The department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Crop and Soil Sciences, with three concentrations: agronomic sciences, turfgrass management, and advanced studies.
Agronomists improve crop production in sustainable systems all over the world while protecting our soil and water resources. The study of turfgrass management is ideal for those who enjoy being outdoors and working hands-on to improve the performance of turfgrass.
Our students combine fundamental disciplines in physical science, biological science and environmental science with crop production and business operations and gain hands-on experience through state-of-the-art labs on campus.
