Agriculture Faculty of Kabul University
Established in 1956, the Faculty of Agriculture at Kabul University holds the distinction of being one of the earliest faculties in Afghanistan. Currently, it encompasses nine departments including agronomy, economics and agricultural development, animal sciences, plant protection, horticulture, forests and natural resources, soil science and biotechnology, seed production, and food technology. Within the faculty, the post-graduate program encompasses master’s programs in animal science, agronomy, and horticulture. Notably, the Faculty of Agriculture engaged in an exchange program with esteemed American universities such as Wyoming, Colorado, and Nebraska from its inception until 1975. Moreover, the Soviet Union extended support and funding through a special project under the UNDP and FAO from 1979 to 1992. The faculty also contributes to scholarly discourse by publishing a monthly scientific journal titled “Elm-Ow-Fon”.
Kabul University, established in 1932, is an ancient, prominent, and highly esteemed public university. It boasts 22 faculties, 101 departments, 867 faculty members, and a student body of 25,200, making it an institution abundant in academic resources.
