Programme and Group

Soil Science evolved as an agricultural and   natural Science with focus on agriculture in view of the need to provide food security for mankind.  Although this need has been met by many industrialised nations, it is yet to be met in many countries of the world, particularly Africa.  For Nigeria, therefore, Soil Science has a major role to play in ensuring adequate food production, just at  it did with the phenomenon of ‘green revolution’ which included the use of fertilizer to boost food production.  As food production is boosted, environmental problem arise, which are tackled by expertise from the field of Soil Science.  Furthermore, Soil Science has a role to play in tackling environmental problems arising from industrial and domestic activities.  This necessitates the inclusion of Land management for appropriate focus on environmental Soil Science.
