What We Do

The Department of Plant Sciences engages in teaching, research and outreach in all aspects of agricultural and environmental plant science. Our programs cover the full spectrum of the land-grant university tradition of scholarship, ranging from fundamental discovery to application of research findings to delivery of research-based knowledge and new technology to end users. Through the integration of basic and applied sciences, our teaching, research and outreach programs are highly effective in training students and addressing theoretical and technological frontiers in plant sciences.
