Plant Breeding Club

The purpose of the plant breeding club is to promote awareness and participation in plant breeding research at NC State University. The plant breeding program at NCSU is an extensive interdepartmental program encompassing students in four departments: Crop and Soil Science, Horticultural Science, Forestry, and Plant Pathology. These departments are based around traditional commodity groupings, and as such do not encompass all the educational or professional needs of their plant breeding students. The plant breeding club shall provide for the professional needs of plant breeding students throughout NCSU as requested by its members and as possible with available resources. The plant breeding club will particularly aid in the development of networking opportunities and professional skills required by commercial and academic institutions generally not obtained in classroom settings. Activities may be suggested by any club member and shall be considered by the executive committee for approval.
