Dean Faculty of Agriculture
The Faculty of Agriculture was established in October, 1962 as one of the six pioneer Faculties of Ahmadu Bello University. Initially, the Faculty functioned as a single unit, with no sub-division into Departments. However, in 1965/66 Session, four Departments, Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology, Animal Science, Plant Science and Soil Science were created. In 1968, the Department of Crop Protection was carved out of Plant Science while in 1970 the Department of Agronomy was created in 1975, the Department of Agricultural Engineering took off. Thus, the Faculty had seven (7) Departments, but in 1976, the Department of Agricultural Engineering was transferred to Faculty of Engineering to enable its graduates qualify to be registered as engineers in Nigeria. In spite of this change, the Department of Agricultural Engineering has maintained its link with the Faculty of Agriculture.
