A Brief Introduction to
  • ????????
  • Northwest AF University
  • (Northwest Sci-Tech University of Agriculture and
    Forestry)

  • Northwest AF University (NWAFU) is a key
    national university under the direct jurisdiction
    of the Chinese Ministry of Education. The
    university is jointly supported and administrated
    by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of
    Agriculture, the Ministry of Water Resources, the
    State Forestry Administration, the Academy of
    Sciences and Shaanxi Province. It is one of
    universities that enter into Project 211 and
    Project 985 and it is also one of the 56
    universities with Graduates School.

The NWAFU is located in the agro-science town
Yangling where Chinas only State Demonstration
Zone of Agricultural Hi-tech Industries was
established in 1997.

History
  • Over 4,000 years ago, Houji- Chinas first
    high-ranking official in charge of agriculture
    taught farmers how to grow crops in Yangling.
    Yangling with its surrounding region has been
    regarded as a main birthplace of the Chinese
    agricultural civilization.

5

In 1934, the National Northwest College of
Agriculture and Forestry - the first of its kind
in Northwest China was established by famous
patriot Mr.Yu Youren and General Yang Hucheng in
Yangling. Since then, it has grown up to be one
of the finest agricultural universities in China
and the world as well.
6
In 1999, seven educational and research
institutions relevant to agriculture, forestry
and environmental sciences in Yangling was
consolidated as one the Northwest AF
University. It is the only university reshaped
through the consolidation of universities and
research institutes in China.
