Administrative History

The Department of Agronomy and Horticulture (1968-2003) was a department under the College of Biology and Agriculture at Brigham Young University.

In 1968 the College of Biological and Agricultural Sciences combined the Department of Agronomy and the Department of Horticulture into the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture. In 2003 it became a part of the Department of Plant and Animal Sciences. Department chairmen included Rudger H. Walker (1968-1972), Laren R. Robison (1972-1984), Rodney D. Horrocks (1984-1990), Richard E. Terry (1990-1999), Von D. Jolley (1999-2003).

The Department of Agronomy and Horticulture offered students the option of majoring in either Agronomy or Horticulture. The purpose for the Agronomy major was to provide a framework of fundamental principles of soil science, field crop production, and their interrelationships. The Horticulture major offered four options: fruit and vegetable production; floriculture and greenhouse management; ornamental horticulture and nursery management; and turf and part management.

The department was administered by a department chairman, under the direction of the college dean. The department was associated with a number of colleges during its existence, including the College of Biological and Agricultural Sciences (1968-1983) and the College of Biology and Agriculture (1983-2003).
