Student Reviews

Outline of Department of Plant Biosciences Faculty of Agriculture and Iwate university
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I studied Crop Science, Plant Breeding Science, Horticultural Science, Plant Pathology, Insect Physiology and Plant Physiology mainly. And I studied another field relevant to agriculture or not relevant like Sociology, Physics and so on. The reason is this university has 4 faculty, agriculture, Humanities and Social Sciences, science and engineering and Education.
