The science of agriculture including research interests such as Botany, Physiology and Zoology, has a wide range as a science. This means that it can collaborate with many sciences such as Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics, as well as Economics and Ecology. For example, Chemistry is necessary to understand Soil Science, Agricultural Pharmacology and Science of Fertilizers, whereas Mathematics are necessary to understand Economics.
New technologies, new economic development, the requirements of the European Union that enforce the restructuring of crops and farming, make necessary the creation of a scientific basis to support and follow these developments. This necessity leads to the establishment of Departments, such as the Department of Agricultural Development, D.U.Th.
