The science of agriculture, with research interests such as Botany, Physiology and Zoology, has a wide range as a science. This means that it can collaborate with many basic sciences such as Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics and also other, complicated ones such as Economics and Ecology. For example, Chemistry is necessary to understand Soil Science, Agricultural Pharmacology and Science of Fertilizers, Mathematics to understand Economics and Physics for Engineering.

New technologies, new economic developmet, 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 creation of Departments such as the Agricultural Development one.
