From The HoD

The Department of Soil Science is a joint Department of the Faculty of Agriculture and the Institute for Agricultural Research (IAR) of the University.

Faculty staff have the primary responsibility of teaching at both under-graduate and post-graduate levels. Their research function is normally tailored to fit into the Institute's research programme and objectives. The Institute staff on the other hand are primarily research personnel although they also participate, to a limited extent, in the teaching function of the Faculty, particularly at the post-graduate level, and mainly in the supervision of post-graduate studies; their involvement in under-graduate teaching is much less. The link between the Faculty and the Institute thus provides the research students with formal access to specialists in the Institute, whilst the latter benefits by way of promoting its research through the participation of graduate students.
