Welcome to the Agronomy Department!
The mission of the Department of Agronomy at the
University of Wisconsin-Madison is to generate, integrate and
apply knowledge about crop plants that are grown for food, feed
and the general benefit of humankind. Through the integration
of teaching, research and extension/outreach
efforts, we find and disseminate answers to problems and discover
opportunities concerning efficiency and sustainability of
production, improvements in quality, and methods for safe and
environmentally-sound practices. We work to ensure that
agricultural systems and products in Wisconsin, the USA, and
international communities are able to meet rapidly-changing
current needs and those of future generations.
