Crop Production

Crop production in West Virginia is important to local economies and helps maintain open rural areas, thereby benefitting environmental quality and tourism. Since crop production is related to natural resources management (water, air, and soil), the agricultural engineering program supports technologies and best management practices (BMPs) to promote environmentally sustainable crop production. To promote economic and social sustainability, all stages of agriculture should be addressed (production, storage/post harvest, processing, and marketing).
