Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension and Rural Development


Welcome to the Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension and Rural Development

From undergraduate studies through to postdoctoral research, the Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development contributes to the international practice, analysis and understanding of the complex agricultural industry and rural environment. We take pride in our accomplishments and those of our students.

The Department is one of the leading research departments at the University of Pretoria. Our research focus areas create a lot of energy and activity with regard to the drivers of the separate programmes. Even though the different focus areas overlap considerably, the advantage of this categorisation is that our comparative advantage can be exploited to the full. This enables us to develop centres of excellence in each of the focus areas.
