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 grown by humans for food, feed, fiber, and fuel. Through the integration of teaching, research, and extension/outreach efforts, we address problems and discover opportunities concerning the efficiency and sustainability of production, improvements in quality, and methods for safe and environmentally-sound practices. While cultivating a positive, diverse, and inclusive working and learning environment, we strive 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.
