Agronomy

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
Doubled haploid (DH) technology can accelerate plant breeding and its two main steps are: haploid induction and subsequent DH production from fertile haploid plants. Whereas haploid female fertility (HFF) is present to some extent in plants, the lack of haploid male fertility (HMF) is a bottleneck. Herein, we demonstrate that mutations in the parallel spindle (ps) genes is sufficient to restore HMF in Arabidopsis with no impact on HFF.
