  • Welcome to department of SOIL SCIENCE AND LAND RESOURCES MANAGEMENT

    The soil science and land resources management discipline is unique because it provides a focus for convergence of technologies. Its uniqueness naturally defines its role and dictates its increasing relevance in several disciplines and modern practices and techniques. The scope of application of soil science and land resources management in the modern scientific and technological context is, therefore, infinitely wide. Students are equipped in the Department and are thus encouraged to function, research and engage in collaborative projects in wide professional contexts.

    : . HISTORY

    SOIL SCIENCE AND LAND RESOURCES MANAGEMENT


    Our programmes in the various departments are well tailored to meet the needs and aspirations of the labour market as well as a growing body of budding entrepreneurs. The production of agricultural commodities to meet domestic and foreign market demand along with remunerative employment to our graduates have remained the central philosophy of the Faculty over the years. Our programmes have been evolving to cater for these changing needs. It is therefore my pleasure to invite you to explore our website for your benefit and information. Please feel free to meet the Head of Department on specific issues about our programmes, admission requirements, research, workshops, seminars and other things of academic interest. One of the goals of the Department of Agricultural Economics is to contribute to National Agricultural Growth through Teaching and Research. This could only be achieved with well trained personnel in the field of Agricultural Economics at both graduate and postgraduate levels. The Department has well grounded teaching staff with local and international exposure and the current programme of the Department allows for the production of qualitative manpower suitable for Private as well as Public and Social Organisations. Students are equipped with tools that engage them in planning and efficient management of resources with Capacity Building in terms of Policy Formulation, Productivity and Innovative Agricultural Resource Management. Prospective candidates are invited to proceed further for more information.
