Serving Idaho Agriculture
For 125 years, the history and economic success of the state of Idaho has been interwoven with two great forces: agriculture and the University of Idaho. A key element of the land-grant mission at Idaho’s founding university has been to educate students in the agricultural sciences, helping drive innovation and continued prosperity in that field.
