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.
