The PhD in Soil Science program focuses on the understanding of the nature and properties of soils and how they relate to improvement on the uses of land particularly in agriculture. Principles in soil science provide in-depth knowledge about the behavior of soils as they are applied to crop and animal production including other uses. These principles are vital to issues related to impacts of climate change on crop and animal production particularly in relation to anticipated changes on soil temperature and moisture regimes.
