Crop Science

Feeding the ever increasing population of the world is a major challenge. Improved crops through plant breeding and better crop management are the keys to meeting this challenge. Students in the Crop Science major explore the theory and practice of plant breeding, genetics, crop physiology, crop quality and pest management leading to environmentally and economically sustainable production systems for the world's major field crops. The major provides students with the basic science of crop improvement required to pursue a diverse range of careers throughout the world.
