Every day is different,one day I may be planting, spraying, note taking, or harvesting in Tennessee, and in the next several hours I could be doing the same thing in Michigan. I meet a lot of people covering seven states, so every day is a new learning experience.

A Rich Future
Our crop sciences alumni are changing the world. From improving plants to meet the growing demand for the world’s food supply, learning how to manage diseases, insects and weeds, studying interactions between agriculture and our environment to enhance food and fuel production, interpreting life systems through biology, computer and information technology, or conserving, maintain and enhancing ecosystems, crop science graduates are feeding the world.
The University of Illinois was rated third nationally by company recruiters for outstanding graduates in a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report.
Graduation rate makes a big difference in the final tuition bill. U of I has the highest four-year graduation rate among Illinois universities with comparable programs and other Big Ten universities.
Making an investment in Crop Sciences is a great way to support our ongoing research, teaching and outreach activities of the department.
