Oklahoma State Crop Teams Looking Forward To New Agricultural Hall And Agronomy FarmWed, 13 Feb 2019 16:42:11 CST
Under quality research space and agronomy farm conditions are a problem at agricultural colleges across the nation. To find out how OSU will combat this issue and prep their crop teams for success, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with Dr. Tom Coon, vice president, dean and director of Oklahoma State University’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. You can listen to their complete conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.
Among the old buildings used by members of OSU crop teams are out-dated green houses and head houses at the agronomy farm along Hwy 51. Right now research facilities are the same ones built over 50 years ago and just aren’t equipped for the innovative work that today’s students are doing.
“We’ve got a national champion caliber team working on our Wheat Improvement Team” commented Dr. Coon. Like with successful athletic programs, investments need to be made in great coaches, athletes, and facilities.
New Frontiers is what Dr. Coon is calling these necessary campus changes that will ultimately lead Oklahoma State University to new areas of excellence. His exciting vision will provide a 21st century College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
