Field Crop Management (120 Credits)

The IPS - Field Crop Management major is ideal for students interested in agronomy, crop production, and plant, soil, and pest management. Crop scientists (or agronomists) are involved in improving food, feed, and fiber production. Graduates qualify for careers in agribusiness, corporate and technical farm management, professional consulting, research, and sales positions.

A student may be admitted to an IPS major upon making their intention known to the department.
