Soil and Crop sciences offers the opportunity to combine biology, physics, chemistry and biotechnology into one discipline.The Turfgrass Science program is offered by Texas A&M University.

The Soil and Crop Sciences Department in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M University was formed in 1958 by combining the departments of Agronomy, Horticulture, and Floriculture. In 1976, horticulture and floricultural activities were removed from the Soil and Crop Sciences Department and placed into a separate Department of Horticultural Sciences.
