Plant Science

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​World population is expected to reach nearly 10 billion in 2050. Sustainably feeding that massive population would require closing a 56% food gap and a 593-million-hectare land gap, almost twice the size of India!

Emphasis on increasing food production without expanding agricultural land is becoming more important and improving crop yield would be fundamental in keeping up with the ever-rising food demand. 

Our MS in Plant Science program is tailored for those interested in developing sustainable cropping practices, breeding plants with improved yield and better resistance to climate change stresses, and restoring damaged ecosystems.
