Plant science is essential to maintaining the world around us. Plants feed us (horticultural and agronomic crops), clothe us (flax, cotton, linen), respire oxygen (photosynthesis), put roofs over our heads (wood), provide us medicine and more. There will always be demand for plant scientists and careers in horticulture!
