Zimbabwe Open University Faculty of Agriculture

Zimbabwe Open University Faculty of Agriculture – See Details of Zimbabwe Open University Faculty of Agriculture


The Faculty of Agriculture was established in June 2014 in recognition of the significance of Agriculture to the national economy and food security and nutrition under ZIMASSET and the increasing need by many would-be farmers to acquire sustainable Agriculture knowledge. Zimbabwe’s economy is agro-based with over 20 % of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) coming from Agriculture.  The heavy reliance of the Zimbabwean economy on agriculture and natural resources makes Agriculture an important discipline for sustainable development.
Graduates from the Faculty are employed in international and local research and development organisations, private sector (co-operatives, consultancy firms and agribusiness), higher and tertiary education institutions, public sector and community based organizations. Graduates are also equipped with entrepreneurial skills that enable them to manage their own businesses.


The Faculty is housed at number 45 Samora Machel Avenue,10th Floor Century Towers building in Harare.
