Agronomy is the study of crops and all their components of production. This programme is designed to provide scientific and technological aspects of producing plants that serve our needs. It offers theoretical and practical knowledge needed for efficient and sustainable crop and animal production through good agro-practices essential for maintaining and improving crop and animal life.
The programme also emphasizes on adopting sustainable agro-ecosystems to reduce possible environmental pollution and mitigate the effects of climate change.
Focus is also on reducing the country’s food importation costs by concentrating on helping local farmers and the agricultural stakeholders increase their production through the enhancement of agricultural research and education.
