The Hillview Farm
This 200-acre lot provides students in the Agronomy, Crop, and Soil Science program and in the Agriculture Technology programs with access to farmland just south of campus.

Students apply what they learn in classes to real-world crop production, soil management, and machinery operations and management concerns. With a variety of crops, irrigation systems, equipment, and technology, students engage in meaningful agricultural experiences.

Department faculty and interested students develop and conduct research projects in the laboratory and in the field. The projects range from examining how plant nutrients and fertilizers behave in the soil to how crop yield is influenced by planting rate.

Students who successfully complete research projects are invited to present their findings at international competitions.
