What Can You Do with an Agronomy and Crop Science Degree?

Radek, what jobs can you get with an agronomy and crop science degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with an agronomy and crop science degree?

A degree in agronomy and crop science will open many doors, especially for those willing to travel, as agronomy has become an international field of study and practice.

Those who earn degrees in agronomy and crop science sometimes go on to manage and/or own farms. Some go to work for the government, and some work internationally, helping developing nations with crop production. Some work directly with farmers and some work with environmentalists. Some go into research and end up working in the field and/or in a lab. Still others go into the business of agronomy and work in production, marketing, and sales. Some go to work for Cooperative Extension.

And, as sustainable agriculture continues to evolve, many opportunities for skilled crop scientists will “crop up.” For more information, visit the American Society of Agronomy.
