About the Department

Established in 1914, the Department of Agricultural Economics is a vital participant in the thrust of the Institue of Agriculture and Natural Resource, University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the State of Nebraska to develop solutions to the world's agriculture and resource problems. Chancellor Perlman stated that UNL is "poised to become a major player in...the production of enough food to feed a hungry world." The Department of Agricultural Economics is in an exceptional position to play a significant role in this charge.
