Sustainable Crop Production (A.A.S.)
Students who choose to major in Sustainable Crop Production at SUNY Cobleskill take a two-year course of study that prepares them for employment in private industry or public service. They are exposed to up-to-date information presented by faculty who are highly trained and well-educated. A student may find themselves in a well-equipped laboratory studying soil science one day and out on the College’s 650-acre farm studying crops. The campus is used extensively for laboratory experiences and the student is typically involved in activities such as collecting insects for a course in Entomology, gathering weeds for Weed Identification, or surveying a field for the Surveying and Land Measurement curriculum. The SUNY Cobleskill mission is to produce graduates with “hands-on” experience who are competent and successful in the field of agriculture. More than 98 percent of Sustainable Crop Production graduates find employment in their chosen area or continue their education.
