We are focused on improving productivity in the agricultural sector, while ensuring the environment is protected.
 
There are four departments in the faculty:

* Soil and Physical Sciences - responsible for delivering all undergraduate and postgraduate soil-related courses, and many physical science courses, including first and second year undergraduate chemistry and physics.
* Wine, Food and Molecular Biosciences - responsible for delivery of the Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology, the Bachelor of Science (Food Science) and teaching for other related courses.
 
The departments teach into four programmes:
