Department of Agriculture activities occur in Ropp Agriculture Building and at the University farm. The Ropp Agriculture Building houses Department and faculty offices, classrooms, a modern greenhouse, and laboratory space. Laboratory space includes facilities for nutrition, soils, agronomy, meat science, agricultural engineering technology, and horticulture.
The University Farm is located on Interstate 55 with access from Lexington, approximately 20 minutes from campus. The farm is utilized extensively for teaching, research, and outreach activities.
The Horticulture Center provides a focal point and support for horticultural instruction and scholarship, as well as public demonstration and outreach. Community members can take part in our many events offered throughout the year. Our students are actively engaged in their experiences, and learn from top-notch faculty. Future development will entail a building that will contain classrooms, offices, labs, greenhouses and several gardens.
