Who are we:
We are students at Purdue with a passion for the agronomy industry. Many of our members have farming backgrounds, some aren’t majoring in agriculture at all, but we all have an interest in agronomy. Anyone is welcome to join!
What we do:
Once a week, Agronomy Club members meet to socialize, have supper, and discuss business. Supper is provided by the club. Discussions at the meetings include upcoming events, regional and national meetings, new issues within the industry, advice from alumni, and much more. We tour facilities that employ our alumni, and also have social outings. Each semester, a few meetings are utilized for work sessions. This is how our members give back to the club. Plant mounts, seed baggies and soil test kits are prepared in order to be sold to FFA chapters.
Purdue Agronomy Club participates in several service projects throughout the year. These include Tippecanoe County Ag Day, White Elephant Auction, Spring Fest, Purdue Ag Week, High School Soil Judging Invitational, and High School Crops Judging Invitational to name a few.
Purdue Agronomy Club is a member of the national body of Students in Agronomy, Soil and Environmental Science (SASES). The club attends the national meeting in the fall semester and a regional meeting in the spring semester. Locations of the meetings change each year.
How to Join:
Come to our weekly meetings! Most of our meetings are held on Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. in Lilly Hall Rm. 2-425. Check out our schedule to find out when we will meet and what we will be doing. Yearly dues are $10 for our club at Purdue and $15 to join the national organization.
