BS in Plant Science - Plant Health Option, B.S.
BS in Plant Science - Crop Production Mgt Option, B.S.
Join the leader in science, technology, and agricultural management. The Department of Plant Science offers plant science
programs focused on agricultural production with options in crop production management or plant health.
Courses offered by the department in-tegrate physiology, soils and nutrition, agronomic practices, plant health management,
protection against plant pests, ag marketing, and mechanization to provide students with a well-balanced background for
positions in plant/soil sciences, and crop production. In addition, courses in areas such as microprop-a-ga-tion and plant
improvement provide students with a background for further studies in plant biotechnology.
Each degree option integrates departmental curricula with the basic sciences (e.g., biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics)
and management skills to build a well-balanced foundation.
The irrigation program is augmented by the Center for Irrigation Technology and the newly created International Center for
Water Technology.
For information about laboratory units and supervised projects, contact the department office.
REQUIREMENTS
Plant Science Minor - Requirements
The 21 units of courses will constitute a basic background in plant science. The program is similar to the major core and
provides students with an introduction to the broad spectrum of plant science. Other majors in the School of Agricultural
Sciences and Technology, particularly the Agricultural Business and Education majors, require students to be knowledgeable
of plant science in order to pursue their careers or teach the subjects of agricultural production. This minor would be a way in
which students could acquire those courses they need and get credit for completing a program of study rather than only a series
of courses.
Select from the following (3 units)
PLANT 100: Aspects of Crop Productivity* (BIOL 11)
PLANT 107: Plant Propagation
PLANT 150: Crop Improvement* (BIOL 11)
Select from the following (6 units)
PLTH 103: Economic Entomology* (BIOL 1A or 11)
PLTH 105: Weeds* (BIOL 1A or 11 and CHEM 3A)
PLTH 106: Plant Pathology* (BIOL 1A or 11)
Select from the following (3 units)
SW 2: Agricultural Water
SW 100: Soils* (CHEM 3A)
Select from one of the following three prefix groups in Plant Science in consultation with an academic adviser (9 units)
(at least 6 units must be upper division)
Group 1: CRSC, SW
Group 2: HORT, OH, VIT

FACULTY
The faculty members hold advanced degrees in their fields of specialization from leading agricultural institutions and
universities in the United States. They are well-qualified teachers who, through extensive research and interaction with major
agricultural industries, bring a wealth of basic and practical information into the classroom. A faculty academic adviser is
assigned to work with each student to plan and design an individualized program of study to meet the student's educational and
career objectives.
Many of the faculty members are involved in one or more of the Centers of the California Agricultural Technology Institute
(Center for Irrigation Technology and the Viticulture and Enology Research Center) and the San Joaquin Experimental Range.
These centers offer excellent opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students to participate in applied research projects
that address and help solve problems faced by California's agricultural industry.
