The Department of Agronomy seeks to teach the study of the farm-field, its crops, and its science and management. It originally consisted of three sub-departments to do this: Soils, Farm-Crops, and Agricultural Engineering (which became its own department in 1907). Today, the department teaches crop sciences and breeding, soil sciences, meteorology, agroecology, and biotechnology.

History
The Department of Agronomy was formed in 1902. From 1917 to 1935 it was known as the Department of Farm Crops and Soils.

Abstract

Hops are thought to be native to Asia. The three known hop species are Humulus lupulus, H. japonicus, and H. yunnanensis. H. lupulus is the only widely cultivated crop species of the three, although H. japonicus can be used ornamentally. Several subspecies exist within H. lupulus, which include a European, Japanese, common hop subspecies var. lupulus, and three native North American subspecies. The North American subspecies include var. neomexicanus, var. pubescens, and var. lupuloides; these represent Western North America, Midwestern USA, and Central and eastern North America (Small, 1980).
