Why study Agronomy?

Agronomy is the study of how the environment and agricultural practices can be managed to control the whole plant growth and crop production cycle. As an agronomist you will utilise a number of scientific disciplines to enhance the production of food, create healthier food, investigate plants as a future energy source and manage the environmental impacts of agriculture. You will combine the study of biological, chemical, ecological and earth sciences or genetics to examine variables such as crop rotation, irrigation and drainage, plant breeding, plant physiology, soil classification and fertility and the control of weeds, insects and other pests to manage the whole plant and crop production cycle.

What you can study

In the agronomy major of the BSAgr(Hons) program students will undertake both an independent research project as well as course work focussing on development of skills in research methodologies, research communication and entrepreneurship. The research project encompasses design, implementation & presentation of research in the field of agronomy. The research project will have an emphasis on defining the research issue, establishing methodology, undertaking appropriate analysis of data and drawing defensible conclusions.
