Occupational Information
General Occupational Information Agronomy involves applying plant and soil sciences to soil and water management and crop productivity. It plays an increasingly important role in conservation and efficient use of natural resources, maintaining environmental quality, and sustained productivity of food, feed, fiber, and fuel. Agronomy is a very broad applied science dealing with:
  • managing and improving crops and soils;

Introducing Winter Cover Crops In a Maize-Soybean Rotation In Illinois
Asst. Prof. of Biometry and Cropping Systems Department of Crop Sciences Graduate Research Assistant Department of Crop Sciences Stephanie Crandall Graduate Research Assistant Department of Crop Sciences The state of Illinois utilizes in excess of 27 million acres of land for agriculture, and approximately 88 percent of that is used for row crop agriculture. Most of that acreage is in a corn-soybean rotation. The problem is that the use of short rotations and intensive and extensive tillage practices in the region has reduced soil quality and thus the agronomic potential and ecosystem services of many fields. Winter cover crops have long been recognized as possible tools for maintaining and improving soil quality and consequently addressing production and environmental concerns in agriculture. Winter cover crops used in a corn ( Zea mays , L) and soybean ( Glycine max , L Merr.) rotation can be a legume, a grass, or a mixture of the two. In the U.S. Central Corn Belt, hairy vetch (

Our Experiences With Transgenic Crops for Insect Control
Kevin Steffey Professor and Extension Entomology Specialist Department of Crop Sciences Transgenic crops for insect control have become part of our research and education landscape since 1996, when the first Bt corn hybrids were introduced. From that point up through 1999, Bt corn has been grown on an increasing number of acres. However, public concern about genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which include Bt corn, has resulted in controversies that have affected the potential use of Bt corn. In addition, densities of European corn borer have been low in the past two years. Consequently, growers in Illinois planted Bt corn on fewer acres in 2000 than they did in 1999. Despite the controversies, and in some instances because of them, research to address the benefits and limitations of Bt corn for control of European corn borer and other important insect pests of corn continue. We conduct annual efficacy trials to determine the effectiveness of commercially available and experimental

Welcome to our website and thanks for taking the opportunity to learn about the exciting programs in agronomy and horticulture at the University of Nebraska. Agronomy is the application of plant and soil science to crop production. Horticulture is the science and art of cultivating fruits, vegetables, flowers, and ornamental plants. 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. Forage plants and hay crops are also considered agronomic crops and are the feed base for the ruminant livestock industry on pastures and rangeland. 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. Some horticultural crops are grown for aesthetic enjoyment and recreation.

Canopy architecture, light utilisation and productivity of intercrops of field pea and canola
P. Soetedjo, L. D. Martin and A.J.V. Janes
Muresk Institute of Agriculture, Curtin University of Technology, Northam, W.A. 6401
Key words: Intercrops, pure stands, field pea, canola, green area index, extinction coefficient, radiation use efficiency. Solar radiation is the major resource determining growth and yield of component crops of intercrops when other growth resources such as nutrients and water are not limiting. This source of energy must be intercept-ed and utilised instantaneously and is fundamentally captured by the plant canopy (2). Canopy architecture is not only essential to describe radiation interception but also precipitation interception, evapotranspiration and crop productivity. Welles and Norman (8) concluded that canopy architecture refers to the distribution of positions, orientations, areas and shapes of various plant organs. Saeki (6) stated that variation in the distribution and orientation of leaves determine the differences in extinction coefficient (K) between plant species or cultivars. He also found that species with horizontal leaves have a larger K than those with steeply inclined leaves. In intercrops of field pea and canola, the trellising effect resulting from field pea climbing on canola stems may change the canopy architecture of field pea, which in turn may change the distribution of solar radiation within the intercrop canopy and its interception by the intercrop canopy. Solar radiation intercepted by the crop canopy determines the dry matter accumulation and the efficiency of use of solar radiation in dry matter production, determined by the Radiation Use Efficiency (RUE) (4). The present study was conducted to determine canopy architecture, light interception and productivity of intercrops field pea and canola, compared to their pure stands.

Nielsen The objectives of the potato program are to assist in the selection and development of improved potato cultivars and to establish methods for improving quality and maximizing economic yields in Alberta's potato industry. These objectives are accomplished through research and technology transfer. In response to demands from Alberta's potato industry, Alberta Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (AAFRD) hired two additional professional staff in 2000. Dr. Michele Konschuh, research agronomist, started at the CDCS in June, 2000 and is working with program technologist Cathy Feth. In September, 2000, Lori Delanoy, extension agronomist, joined Clive Schaupmeyer at the AAFRD Taber office.
