Welcome to the Faculty of Agriculture’s website. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to say a few words of welcome to the Faculty’s website. The Faculty of Agriculture is one of three founding faculties of Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (now Universiti Putra Malaysia) in 1971.  As a premier Faculty of Agriculture in Malaysia we are determined to be the centre of excellence in education, research, and professional services in areas of agriculture tropical.

Guided on the national education system, the Faculty endeavors to produce experienced agriculturalists with entrepreneurial spirit and able to undertake consultations as well as produced new and quality agricultural technologies, as a result of research and commercialization programs.

Basically, our Faculty offering undergrads programmes such as Bacelor of Agricultural Science, Bacelor of Horticulture Science, Bacelor of Science (Agribusiness), Bacelor of Agriculture (Aquaculture) and Bacelor of Agriculture (Animal Science).   Besides, the Faculty also offers post-graduate programmes namely Master in Land Resource Management (without thesis), Master in Plantation Management (without thesis), Master of Science (M.S) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).
