Department of Crop Production

Department of Crop ProductionFounded in 1931, the crop production department (currently - crop production and plant protection) plays a leading role in the technological preparation of agronomists. The first head of the department was the second director of this institute, Professor Islam Mahammad Datiyev.

At different times, the department was headed by associate professors S.F. Huseynov, G.R. Nagiyev, from 1941 to 1972, Honored Scientist Professor Prokopiy Grebennikov.

Under the scientific supervision of P. Grebennikov were defended more than 30 candidate dissertations.

Later, associate professor Chingiz Novruzov, professors Sari Aliyev, Sevda Bekhbudov, headed the department.

Due to structural changes at the University, the Department of Technical Plants and Selection (at different times the department was headed by Associate Professor Mamay Gulubeyov, Professors Niyaz Safarov, Khalis Gulahmadov, Associate Professors Magsud Gulubeyov, Tofig Tagiyev, and Sevinj Mustafayeva) was abolished. The teaching of subjects on technical plants was given to the Department of Crop Production, and the teaching of subjects on genetics and selection was given to the Department of General Agriculture.

The department of plant protection including entomology and phytopathology was established in 1929, and later operated under the name of entomology and phytopathology, the first head of the department was Professor S.Y.Shembel.

After 1937, the departments operating under different names ("Entomology and Phytopathology", "Silk", "Entomology", "Phytopathology") was headed by A.I. Lobik, A.V.Anuchin, B.L.Mixin, associate professors Z.S.Afandiyev, D.B.Aslanov, M.Y.Bondarovich, professors S.Mammadova, U.Rahimov, R.Huseynov, B.Khalilov, associate professors G.Mammadov and H.Jamalov.

The triticale cultivation technology in the western part of the republic was first developed by associate professor M.M. Ismayilov.

The results of numerous studies by professors Kh.Gulakhmedov and N. Safarov on the influence of technogenic factors on the yield and quality of cotton fiber are also very valuable for farmers.

In connection with the new requirements for the development of education on the cotton-growing course, textbooks and study guides were written for all stages of continuous education (secondary school - university improvement system).

Professor of the department, corresponding member of ANAS Ibrahim Jafarov wrote textbooks and study guides for students, graduate students, doctoral students, as well as for the teachers and specialists in the field of agronomy and agrochemistry, as well as biology at other universities.

Dozens of his scientific articles have been published in prestigious international journals abroad.

The department conducts research in 6 areas "Implementation of technological measures to increase the productivity of field crops in the western region and ensure the production of organic products."

- The study of technological measures that increase the productivity of autumn triticale and ensure the production of organic products in grain farms in the western region.
- The study of technological measures to improve the productivity and quality of sugar beets in the western region.
- The study of agrobiological features of new regionalized varieties and hybrids of corn in Azerbaijan.
- Development of measures to control pests of plants belonging to the family Solanaceae in the Ganja-Gazakh region.
- The study of the main diseases of plants belonging to the Solanaceae family, and measures to fight against them.

The anniversary meeting of the Council of Rectors of the leading agricultural universities of the CIS dedicated to the 15th anniversary, for special merits and personal contribution to the improvement of the Council, developing higher and doctoral education, expanding integration into the international scientific and educational space, strengthening friendship and cooperation, He was awarded a gold medal for “Contribution to the development of agrarian science, education, and production."

In order to assist the production, the staff of the department visits farms, organizes seminars for farmers on the cultivation of various crops, disease, and pest control measures, advises farmers in many regions, conducts regular training for them.

The teaching and professor staff of the department consists of 23 people: (1 corresponding member of ANAS, professor, 10 associate professors (1 professor of ADAU), 4 senior teachers, 8 assistants).
