Programme Overview

The department of LARMAT has a unique heritage because it was established in 2005 following the merger of two previously full-fledged departments and an Institute. The departments were Soil Science, Range Management and the Institute for Dryland Research Development and Utilization. It is the second-largest and dynamic department of the Faculty of Agriculture in the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences.

The department of Soil Science was among the oldest units of the Faculty of Agriculture teaching all soil science and related courses in the faculty. In 1976, the department launched a Master’s degree programme in Soil Science and thereafter a Doctoral programme. Several of the Master’s graduates proceeded to PhD.
