Education in this minor emphasizes the principles of ecology in agronomic systems and the basic sciences upon which these principles are grounded. A minor in agroecosystems can complement several majors, and will enhance career opportunities related to soil, crop, and irrigation resource management and sustainable agriculture.
Upon successful completion, students will be able to:
1. Analyze agroecosystem challenges using quantitative approaches and state-of-the-art technologies.
2. Collaboratively apply agroecosystem science to real-world problems.
