Enrollment in several Department of Plant Sciences programs is up, as well.  Enrollment in the Crop and Weed Sciences program has jumped 236% in the last six years.  Department head Dr. Richard Horsley says, “The increased enrollment is due to increased employment opportunities and favorable salaries in the region for our graduates.”
