The agronomic science track allows students to build a thorough understanding of crop science with a concentration in areas such as agricultural chemicals, fertilizers, integrated pest management, and seed conditioning and technology.
The crop production track, along with building strong agronomic skills, has an agricultural business component that allows students to develop their marketing and farm business management skills.
Rob Proulx, a lecturer Agriculture and Natural Resources Department discusses the agronomy major and what sets it apart. Rob is not only a faculty member but also an alumnus. He earned his bachelor's degree in agronomy from the U of M, Crookston in 2006 and then went on to complete a master of science in applied plant sciences with a specialization in agronomy/agroecology from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
