Crop scientists breed crops and develop cropping systems, that are profitable and ecologically sustainable.
In light of the ever growing world population and the finite cropping area, this goal remains a key challenge of humanity today and will become even more important in the future.
Hohenheim offers one of the most extensive study programmes in crop sciences in the world. The scientific infrastructure of the university, with its research station and the State Plant Breeding Institute, is unique. This offers students the possibility to apply their theoretical knowledge into the practice.
The Masters program in Crop Science seeks to apply biological, physiological, molecular genetic and biometric principles to crops and cropping systems, in order to increase their efficiency. Graduates are prepared to creatively solve the changing problems in modern crop development, production and management. This requires an understanding of diverse fields, from basic biology, physiology and ecology to bioinformatics and expert systems.
Crop Science majors at the Universität Hohenheim concentrate on the interrelationships between the physiological and biological factors that regulate crop productivity.

On November 20, 1818, Hohenheim became the site of an important agricultural institution, founded by King William I of Württemberg for teaching, experimentation and demonstration. The first director was Johann Nepomuk Schwerz, and it was located in the castle built by Duke Karl Eugen.
