Welcome to the School of Agric. and Technology

The School of Agriculture and Technology was established in the 2014/2015 academic year at the Dormaa Ahenkro Campus of UENR. The contribution of agriculture to the country’s economic growth continues to be significant, despite Ghana’s oil find and the impact of climate change. The promotion of productivity growth in agriculture, sustainable management of land and the environment and the application of science and technology in food and agricultural development is crucial for Ghana’s economy. The School of Agriculture and Technology is poised to provide a strong and vibrant leadership to the agricultural industry to meet the increasing demand for food, raw materials for industry and agricultural commodities for export. This will require an intimate knowledge of climate, soil, species, infrastructure, political, social and legal systems. Issues of interest include: the increased demand for agricultural produce for local consumption and export; land availability for commercial agriculture and natural resource conservation; sustainable agricultural production; postharvest management, agriculture and climate change and agriculture and oil-driven ‘Dutch Disease’. The School will provide instruction, research and outreach to address these critical issues. Research at the School will be need-based with strong community and industry inputs and integrated with natural resource management.

The School of Agriculture and Technology seeks to bring a paradigm shift in teaching, research and outreach in agriculture to promote performance, modernization, efficiency and competitiveness of the agricultural sector. The strategy is to bring science, technology, economics and human values to the social, economic and technical processes involved in the production and transformation of raw materials originating through agriculture, livestock and forestry to adapt them for consumption and the markets. To feed the nation and promote the inherent strengths of agriculture in a national economy requires more efficient operating systems, new technologies, and increased levels of partnership to meet household, national and global food security. The School of Agriculture and Technology is poised to contribute to this through its academic and research programmes. Areas of specializations in our Bachelor of Science in agriculture programme include:
