Last month, eight BYUI students and faculty members from the Applied Plant Science department traveled to Phoenix, AZ to meet with over 3900 other people from 56 countries for the annual agronomy and soils meetings. The meetings are a culmination of the Student Mentored Research program supported by the department. During the summer, students conducted supervised research on plant and soil-related topics on the BYUI Hillview Farm, statistically evaluated the data, then prepared posters summarizing the findings. Students were able to present their posters during the competitive poster session and two of our students won second and third place in their divisions. Nice job students!
The Agronomy, Crop, Soil Science, and Agriculture TechnologyPrograms provide excellent connections with local and international Agricultural companies doing research through the farm on campus, as well as coordinating internship and employment opportunities throughout their network in the industry. Employment opportunities for students with a background in Agriculture are excellent.
