The Department of Plant Sciences is in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The department was formed in 2004 through the merger of classic UCD departments of Agronomy and Range Science, Pomology, Vegetable Crops & Weed Science and Environmental Horticulture and Urban Forestry. Much of UCDavis's agricultural history and expertise is in this department. It is also strongly affiliated with the UC Cooperative Extension program that helps farmers and homeowners throughout California.

This department should not be confused with the similarly named Department of Plant Biology. Both offer majors with plants, although Plant Biology tends to focus on the study of an individual plant's parts, biochemistry and function, rather than this program's study of plant growth, use, ecology and interactions.

The Department offers four majors:

Undergraduate minors offered:

Plant Sciences is also home of the Weed Science research group and the Weed Doctors at Picnic Day, as well as the tomato and popcorn giveaways.
