The purpose of the CSU Agronomy Club is to gather together students with similar interests for their common benefit and advancement. The Agronomy Club provides a chance for students to take an active part in their department through fundraising projects, social events, and scholastic activities. To learn more about the origins of the CSU Agronomy Club visit our history page.



The CSU Agronomy Club elects new officers in April for the 2019-2020 school year, so start thinking about who you would like to be your officers.  Meet the officers.

Behind a great group of student leaders is a dedicated and empowering faculty member. Meet the advisors.


The Golden Pitchfork Reward

At the end of each school year, the President of the club chooses one club member to receive the Golden Pitchfork reward. This reward entitles the receiver of the reward to have their name engraved into the handle of the pitchfork. To earn this achievement, the member must be doing work for the club above and beyond what is needed. This reward is only for the members or officers of the club, except for the office of President.
