About

We offer a master degree in Agronomy and Horticulture at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The Department of Agronomy and Horticulture offers graduate degree programs leading to an M.S. (thesis or non-thesis) or Ph.D. in plant and soil sciences.

Overview

Agronomy is the application of plant and soil science to crop production. Agronomy emphasizes staple food crops, such as corn, rice, beans, and wheat, which are produced on a large scale and represent the foundation of our human food supply. The master degree in Agronomy and Horticulture is available at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. 

Horticulture is the science and art of cultivating fruits, vegetables, flowers, and ornamental plants. Horticultural crops are used to diversify human diets and to enhance our living environment. Vegetables, fruits, flowers, ornamentals, and lawn grasses are examples of horticultural crops and are typically produced on a smaller scale with more intensive management than agronomic crops.

The Department has well-equipped laboratories, modern greenhouses, growth chambers, and field facilities, including four district research centers spanning several ecoregions, available to graduate students. For instance, the Plant Sciences Program combines integrative curriculum with collaborative research in highly specialized facilities.
