RESEARCH FOCUS AREA

Research is the mainstream of Yezin Agricultural University providing information for technical development and practical application. Students’ research, departmental research, collaborative research, and international research projects are being done with government budget, funding from international organizations as well as private companies, and individuals.

The research trend of Yezin Agricultural University has been agricultural production, agricultural environment, and social science and agricultural economics. Some of the research works are published biennial YAU journal while many are in the proceedings of domestic and international conferences. Research collaborations are encouraged both for individuals and departments.
