OSU Crops Team

Who are we?

The OSU Crops Team has a legacy of nearly 100 years. Competitive teams throughout the University provide skills and knowledge that students carry throughout their careers. The Crops Team is very hands-on and teaches students various aspects, from classing grain samples according to USDA guidelines to calculating stocking rates based on pasture conditions. The team travels to various contests throughout the year, and we try to cover most travel and food costs for all students so that money is never a limiting reason for a student to attend. For many students, this may be their first experience traveling out of the state of Oklahoma or their first time participating in a national contest. 

What are we raising funds for? 

The team is traveling to Modesto, CA, this spring for a competitive academic contest. As the team prepares, we are seeking funding to offset the trip cost for the six competing students. Students will compete against students from agricultural schools across the United States. This is always an excellent experience for students to see agricultural operations in a different region and gain new knowledge regarding that production system. This contest also allows students to gain lasting connections with their peers that will become colleagues as they progress into their future careers. 

The funds raised allow students to gain these lifelong experiences without adding additional financial burden to their semester. 

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Thank you for choosing to support the OSU Crops Team. We cannot wait to update you as the students compete.

Where it all began

The OSU Crops Team began in the 1920s. This team helped train students into grain graders who would then work for various ports and other grain selling and trading locations.


A Bushel of Almonds

As the team travels to Modesto, CA. We wanted to showcase one of the top commodities in Stanislaus County.


A Bushel of Wheat

Since a bushel of Wheat is 60 lbs, we wanted this level to represent of the most iconic grain crops grown in the state of Oklahoma.



Hundredweight (cwt) is the standard unit of measure for rice. We don't have much rice in Oklahoma, but California is the second largest rice producing state in the nation.


Triple Nickle

Triple Nickle or Delta Pine 555 was a standout cotton variety for many years. This is the average airfare cost for Crops Team members traveling to Modesto, CA. If you donate at this level, you will receive an invitation to the Senior Sendoff Picnic at the end of the spring semester.


1 ton

A ton is 2,000 lbs, so this level is showing a "ton" of support for the OSU Crops Team. If you donate at this level, you will receive an invitation to the Senior Sendoff Picnic at the end of the spring semester.
