The Bachelor of Science in Plant and Soil Science will help prepare you to make a positive difference in the world. It is designed for students who are interested in a scientific understanding of how plants grow in agricultural soils under intensive management. Plant and soil science expertise are needed to address many of our most pressing problems. These issues include producing enough food and fiber to feed a growing world population beset by climate change and regenerating our soils and agroecosystems to produce healthy and nutritious food. Our farm provides practical experiences in organic vegetable production, aquaponics, greenhouse production, and field and tree crop production.
