As the old saying goes, “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” Umm, that’s not always the case, though. What’s good for grapes may not be good for corn. Agronomy majors learn what individual crops need to be most productive. Study such topics as soil nutrients, pest management, and weed control. You’ll learn and do it all here. Take great satisfaction in knowing you’re helping feed the world. See how this highly technical field prepares students for a challenging career in so many areas.
Agronomy is a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree.
