Graduate Studies


More than three years ago research began focusing finding the MAXIMUM YIELD OF SOYBEANS and production practices that factor into a promising harvest. Led by researcher RYAN VAN ROEKEL, a U of Arkansas Ph.D. candidate working with Dr. Larry Purcell and funding from the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board, his mission was to find vital data that growers can use.


The ARKANSAS SOYBEAN PODCAST has been following Ryan's progress. We are pleased to reveal his conclusions.


The following advanced degrees with areas of specialization are offered from the Department of Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences at the University of Arkansas:
