Agronomy Department 

Agronomy Program Information


The Agronomy Department offers the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Science (thesis and nonthesis option) in agronomy with specializations in crop physiology and ecology, crop management and nutrition, weed science, and plant breeding and genetics. Requirements for these degrees are given in the Graduate Degrees   section of this catalog.

Graduate programs emphasize the development and subsequent application of basic principles in each specialization to agronomic plants in Florida and throughout the World. The continuing need for increased food, fiber and energy for a rapidly growing population is reflected in departmental research efforts. When compatible with a student’s program and permitted by prevailing circumstances, some thesis and dissertation research may be conducted wholly or in part in one or more of several countries.

A science background with basic courses in biology, botany, mathematics, chemistry, and physics is required of new graduate students.
