The Department is one of the most important centers of research work in the field of Agrochemistry and soil science.
In the field of agricultural chemistry and soil science the main research task of the department is the analysis of the principles and methods of fertilization advisory service, partly through the use of different models. Additionally, on-going researches reveal the impact of nutrition on cultivated crops (plant development, yield, quality characteristics, disease resistance, fodder value; the diversity of grasslands) and the relationships between soil test data and nutrient element effects. The calculation of nutrient balances on field, farm, regional and national scale is also among the activities of the department.
Employees of the Department are constantly addressing the issues of improving the quality of teaching, students ' knowledge, strengthen communication studies and science with production.
