In the College’s Vision and Mission statements research is one of the main components in addition to teaching and service. The College endeavors to carry out relevant research in order to generate suitable technologies and provide relevant advisory services to the Agricultural and related sectors in Botswana and beyond. The College has adequate human and physical resources for research distributed in the Departments of Agricultural Economics, Educations and Extension (AEE), Agricultural Engineering and Land Planning (AEL), Animal Science and Production (ASP), Basic Sciences (BS) and Crop Science and Production (CSP). The College Farm also has facilities such as the center pivot irrigation system, various farm implements and animals for supporting staff research.
Each department has developed research thrusts or themes under which research project proposals are developed. Funding of research is through the Research and Publications Committee (RPC) of the College and international research funding organizations. Members of staff are encouraged to conduct collaborative research within and among departments, and with national and international institutions. Check individual departments for more information on completed and current research projects and staff publications. The RPC is funding the publication of the Botswana Journal of Agricultural and Allied Sciences (BOJASS).
