Youth looking at a plant

Plant Sciences projects are designed to teach how plants and soils are exciting and interesting. Learn to identify plants, develop skills in caring for and using plants, recognize undesirable and poisonous plants, grow crops properly, harvest and process crops and to use them or market them. Learn about the relationships between all phases of natural resource management including wildlife, range, forestry, water and soils and develop an appreciative attitude toward sound management of natural resources and a broad understanding of relationships between agriculture and nature. You will also be able to seek out the scientific principles of plant growth and develop an interest in further work or careers.
