Department of Soil Science

Soil Science is a branch of human agricultural knowledge that discusses and introduces soil to students as an integrated subject at various aspects and educational levels. Soil science focuses on soil as a medium for plant growth and its vital rule in crop production for human food supply along with other important aspects of soil in human health and wellbeing. Several sub-branches of soil science include:
a) Soil genesis and morphology: Discusses how many complex processes take place over years to make a thin layer of soil over the earths surface crust.
b) Soil biology and biotechnology: Opens students’ eyes and ears to the glorious world of the soil and demonstrate how soil habitants, plants, animals and humans are benefitted calm but steady activities of soils.
c) Soil chemistry and fertility: In brief, teaches students what to do with soils unable to supply enough nutrient for plants which are suffered nutrient insufficiency.
d) Soil physics and conservation: Teaches students how unwise use and being unawareness about soil can rapidly devastate this human valuable resource and bring disaster for her.
Soil science "as a whole" educates us for wise and correct use of soil, to take care of soil and to safely and healthily conserve it for the future generation.
Department of Soil Science was established in 1965 and eventually expanded both quantitatively and qualitatively 1982, when Ph.D. programs were established. Several well-equipped laboratories are available including soil biology and biotechnology, soil physics, soil morphology and genesis labs. Department of Soil Science accepts students Iran and abroad particularly at Ph.D. level. Many developments and facilities in our department- by cooperation with other departments- has created a challenging atmosphere for the department academic members as well as students encouraging a high level of education and research efforts.
