Food and Agriculture

Climate change, hunger, pest outbreaks—Washington State University plant science researchers are forging a new vision for answering some of society's greatest challenges.
 
Finding answers. Through research, University scholars are finding ways to:
• transition to sustainable farming practices
• enable crop plants to adapt to climate change
• develop biomass crops for biofuels
• increase crop yields
• advance disease resistance
• and more
 
Buoying Washington's economy. With agriculture and plant science central to Washington's economy, discoveries in these fields help our state thrive.
 
Taking the lead. Among the faculty are world leaders in their disciplines, including many who work and teach under a unique partnership agreement with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service.
