Agriculture is an essential human activity with a social function that shapes civilization; and is vital to the survival and well-being of humanity. This idea forms the cornerstone for the Facultad de Agronomía with its 50 years of pursuing the mission of preserving, assimilating, developing and sharing universal agronomic knowledge through its continuous research, teachings, continuing education and interactions with the global academic community and the national production sectors for the benefit of the university, society and the government. Thanks to the combined endeavor of many people, especially the joint efforts of teachers, students, graduates and administrators, the Facultad has graduated 3251 individuals in 55 classes since the creation of its Ingeniería Agronómica program in 1963 and has offered postgraduate programs since 1969, initially as master programs in conjunction with the Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario ICA and, starting in 1983, through the Escuela de Posgrados. In 1995, the doctorate program was opened with a basis in high-level research. Furthermore, its journal Agronomía Colombiana has been sharing knowledge since 1983 and, in that time, has published 783 technical-scientific articles that were produced by the research of students and professors of the Departamento de Agronomía and by domestic and international entities.
