We support the missions of Oregon State University and College of Agricultural Sciences through our commitment to acquire, integrate and disseminate basic and applied knowledge about field crops and cropping systems in an ever changing world. We educate undergraduate and graduate students and work with citizens throughout the state, nation and world to help solve problems related to field crop agriculture and natural systems, rural and urban economies and communities, and natural resource management.
We offer many ways for students to learn about agronomy and sustainable crop production methods.
