    The program of agronomy of Yangzhou University originated from Tonghai Agricultural College, a private agricultural school established in 1902. Since then, this college evolved into Nantong College in 1906, North Jiangsu Agricultural College in 1952, Jiangsu Agricultural College in 1971, and College of Agriculture of Yangzhou University in 1992. The program of agronomy was formally established in 1952, renamed as the program of crop science in 1987, and was changed into its original name “ program of agronomy ” in 1991.

    The program of agronomy was listed as Brand Program of Jiangsu Province (the first batch) in 2006, Featured Construction Program at National Level in 2007, Top Program of Jiangsu Province in 2012, and Pilot Program of Research-based Teaching of Yangzhou University in 2014. In the same year, the program of agronomy was listed as Pilot Program for Training Outstanding Talents Majoring Agriculture and Forestry by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Agriculture and State Forestry Administration. In 2015, the program of agronomy was listed as Top-notch Academic Programs Project of Jiangsu Higher Education Institutions (the first batch).

    The program of agronomy is highly qualified with professionals in solving practical problems in the field of crop production. There are one academician of China Academy of Engineering, two national-level experts who have made outstanding contributions, two experts who have made outstanding contribution at the provincial level, three professors that are enjoying the special allowance of State Council, two professors that have won the award of One-million National Talents Project, one high-cited Chinese scholar and one professor that has made outstanding contribution to national food production. Two professors are elected the deputy directors of the Committee of Rice Production of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Committee of Wheat Production of the Ministry of Agriculture. One professor was elected the chairman of Chinese Society of Crop Cultivation affiliated to Chinese Society of Crop Sciences. The program of agronomy has two teams of scientific and technological innovation approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, five teams of scientific and technological innovation approved by Jiangsu Provincial Department of Education. The program of agronomy is strongly supported by many R & D platforms, including one doctoral program (crop science, Level-1 discipline), one National Key Discipline (Crop Cultivation and Farming System), two provincial disciplines (Crop Genetics and Breeding, Agri-Product Safety and Environment), Priority Academic Program of Jiangsu Higher Education Institutions, Jiangsu Co-Innovation Center for Modern Production Technology of Grain Crops, Joint International Research Laboratory of Agriculture and Agri-Product Safety of the Ministry of Education, Key Lab of Functional Genomics of the Ministry of Education, Jiangsu Provincial Key Laboratory of Crop Genetics and Physiology (Incubator of National Key Laboratory), Jiangsu Provincial Key Lab of Functional Genomics, Jiangsu Provincial Key Lab of Crop Cultivation and Physiology, and Joint Laboratory in Agricultural Sciences between AAFC and Yangzhou University.

    For more than 60 years, the development of the program of agronomy has always adhered to its own principals and is now still undergoing a rapid development. This program has successfully developed advanced agricultural theories and technologies of crop production, with Leaf Age Model, Population Quality and Precise Quantitative Cultivation as the representatives. The staff of this program have won 10 National Awards for Science and Technology Progress and made outstanding contributions to guarantee national food safety.
