Integrated Crop Management is the study of food and fiber production utilizing ecologically sound and technologically advanced methods. Areas covered include basic concepts for plant science and specific practices in crop initiation, culture, harvesting, processing, distribution and marketing. Biotechnological and traditional methods of germplasm enhancement are taught. Specific program areas of study include agronomic crop production, crop science, fruit science, seed science, seed technology, and vegetable crop production. Students completing the Integrated Crop Management curriculum are prepared for careers as producers, consultants, technical representative plant breeders, extension agents, or inspectors with USDA and state agencies. This curriculum also provides a good background of basic sciences for those who wish to pursue graduate studies.
Mississippi State University is now offering degree programs that may be completed in three years. These undergraduate degree programs are special programs which allow highly motivated and hard-working students the opportunity to complete a degree in three years rather than the traditional four years. Both the three year and traditional four year degree program are available in Integrated Crop Management.
