Introduction of Dept. of Agronomy and Plant Breeding Sciences


The Department of Agronomy and Plant Breeding Sciences is a preeminent department focused on crop production and breeding in order to improve quantity and quality of important crops and solving agricultural fundamental problems in Iran and extension of novel sciences in agronomy and breeding. It has been established in 1984 and currently 12 faculty members in this department are teaching agriculture lessons along with doing research. The department of agronomy and plant breeding offers one undergraduate field (as Bs) in agronomy and plant breeding. This degree program provides an applied foundation of sciences and principals of agriculture as well as technical courses related to cultivation and breeding of crops. This department also offers Master of Science in three different fields including agronomy, plant breeding and plant biotechnology. In addition, PhD degree is offered in two main fields of Agronomy (crop physiology and crop ecology) and plant breeding (molecular genetics and genetic engineering and biometrical genetics). There are plenty of educational and research facilities including laboratories (Agronomy, Seed technology, Crop physiology, Herbarium, Botanic, Genetics, Genomics, Biotechnology and Tissue culture) in addition to growth room, greenhouse and farms in this department.
