Overview

Crop improvement, whether through traditional breeding or genetic engineering, is one of the most important drivers of agricultural improvements. 

New technologies enable us to develop crop varieties that are more nutritious, resilient to climate change, and disease resistant. 

Career opportunities are available in both the public and private sectors, including basic research, plant breeding, product development, sales, and many other areas.

The Soil and Crop Sciences, Plant Biotechnology, Genetics, and Breeding Concentration is offered by Colorado State University
