Expanding your understanding of soils and crops

An agronomy minor introduces you to the study of soils and field crops with a focus on soil management, production of row crops and forages, and soil conservation. Many of our agronomy courses incorporate hands-on learning experiences through laboratory classes and field trips to the Darr Agriculture Center and Journagan Ranch.
