Campus Explorer, a free website that’s designed to help all types of students find the schools which best match their needs, recently announced its list of the top four colleges for those looking to focus their studies on agriculture.

The top four colleges on the list include Utah State University, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Purdue University, and Montana State University. According to Campus Explorer, each of these colleges and universities are reasonably priced and excel at providing the resources agriculture majors need to be successful.

Utah State University, which ranks number one on the list, offers more scholarships to agriculture students than any other program in the U.S. Their expanding College of Agriculture educates 1,200 undergrads and is looking to add more to their offerings.

Cal Poly San Luis Obispo follows USU on the list, boasting its own creamery, organic farm, and irrigation research center. Purdue University comes in at number three, with its College of Agriculture ranking number one for agriculture studies. Montana State University rounds out the top four, with a College of Agriculture that’s impressive based on size alone. With working farms and specialized research centers, MSU’s agriculture program is one of the most popular on campus.

MSU Vice President of Agriculture Charles Boyer said in a release, “This success begins with our incredible faculty who provide hands-on learning and research experiences at our farms with students as partners, who make the overall experience of learning real and fun. We celebrate and live the unique mission of the Land-grant with a statewide presence and support by our agricultural community – a legacy that allows MSU to stand apart.”

Each of these colleges are among the best in the U.S. for those looking to pursue a future in agriculture.
