Purdue Smarter Agriculture is about using the best tools to drive innovation. Agriculture is at the crossroads of change. Farmers are charged with producing enough food to feed the 9 billion people expected to inhabit the globe by 2050. While it’s a grand challenge, Purdue Agriculture knows it also presents grand opportunities for our state’s farm families. The Purdue Plant Sciences Research and Education Pipeline is about giving farmers the tools they need to meet the demand. The pipeline brings together researchers and students from many disciplines to improve crop quality, identify tools for easier and more productive crop management, develop new ways to deal with adverse conditions, and help farmers use best practices to keep farms sustainable and profitable for future generations.
During the past two decades, more than 90 percent of Purdue Agriculture graduates were employed or were enrolled in graduate or professional schools within three months of graduation.
