Agronomy
Overview

Agronomy is the science of utilizing plants for food, fuel, feed, and fiber. 4-H projects in agronomy can explore the areas of plant genetics, plant physiology, soil science and even the weather! Agronomy is really cool because it combines sciences like biology, chemistry, ecology, earth science, and genetics. As a career choice, Agronomists help in producing food, creating healthier food, managing environmental impacts, and creating energy from plants. Just imagine, you might invent a fuel for our cars.
