What is your favorite part of your major?
The relationships among my colleagues and friends are the favorite part of my major. I enjoy working with them and have a great deal of respect for them. The awareness that our research could make a difference in the future of agriculture is rewarding and exciting.
The Crop, Soil and Pest Management graduate program area prepares students for careers in research, teaching, extension, production agriculture and related industries. Current research programs emphasize soil and nutrient management, forage management, cereal and oil seed crop production, alternative crops, cropping systems, weed management, integrated pest management and precision agriculture. Many degree programs are cross-disciplinary to give students a comprehensive view of the field.
