The College of Agriculture was one of the two colleges instated when the
University of Duhok was initiated in 1992, over an area of 100 acres
(160 donums), 15 km west of Duhok designated for agricultural research
purposes. This allocated land is irrigated by local springs for growing
rice, tomatoes, sesame, and other crops. Now, there is about a hundred
acres of agricultural land with two artesian wells for growing grains,
legumes, and other summer and winter crops.
In addition, there is an
orchard of olive and almond trees that is irrigated by a spray system.
The College also possesses two air conditioned greenhouses, several
plastic houses; a well equipped plant tissue culture laboratory, two
lath houses, an apiary field, and fields where poultry, sheep, fish and
cows are raised.
