Agronomic crops are those that produce fiber, vegetable oils, animal feed, processed human foods, and industrial raw materials. This course provides students with an overview of the production, regionalism, and uses of agronomic crops, particularly those grown in North America. All steps in the production of crops are covered, however, spring-season management practices are emphasized. Previous farm experience is NOT necessary for this course. Crop science majors must take Field Crops I during the spring immediately before taking Field Crops II (offered every other year).
