Faculty of Horticulture and Landscape Engineering
Faculty of Horticulture and Landscape Engineering was founded in 1995 as a result of a project of the Agricultural University and the split of the Agronomics Faculty that provided education in the field of Landscape Engineering and the specialization Horticulture. Faculty is primarily focused on the education of professionals focused on horticultural production, fruit growing, viticulture, vegetable and flowers protuction, on garden design and landscaping, renovation and maintenance of green areas, planning and landscape creation, soil, air and water protection, ground design, waste management, construction and restoration of rural areas.

Focuses of Faculty research –impact of climate change on different agricultural production; –changes in concentration of greenhouse gases; –growing technology of fruit trees, vines and vegetables; –biotechnics, dendrology; –use and application of GIS in agriculture, garden and landscape architecture and landscape planning; –register of the renewed land registration and land consolidation; –the impact of waste on components of environment; –function and dendrological structure of the verdure, natural and artificial vegetation in urban areas and landscape; –research of functional areas of the city regarded to the application of veretation; –renewal of historical gardens, renewal of rural settlements; –protection of natural resources, protection of soil and water resuorces; –hydromelioration: irrigation, revitalization of small streams, small wastewater treatment.
Centre of Excellence for integrated river basin management Project No.: ITMS in 2010, became part of the Centre of Excellence for integrated river basin management in a changing environmental conditions (CEIMP) together with partner organizations Institute of Hydrology and the Technical University in Zvolen. The project is cofinanced for a period of 2.5 years by the EU grant. –as part of the implementation of activities was built monitoring system of soil water regime wired 15 automatic hydrological stations and 4 meteorological stations; –special equipment: Photogrammetric equipment for close photogrammetry including lenses, Baro Diver and Diver for measuring the depth of water, vacuum pycnometer, Total Station with integrated GPS, GPS Penetrologer, etc.
Laboratory of Explantate Cultures The laboratory provides experimental basis for development of recent and perspective scientific activities focused on ecological technologies which are contributing to the sustainable production of quality horticulture products, on quantification of mass and energy flow data, quantification of water regime indicators in plants in drought conditions and the regulation and the modeling of these indicators. It provides practical teaching in the field of analytical work and laboratory technics for the subjects „Telary cultures and micropropagation of horticulture plants“ and „Reproduction and seed growing of woody plants“. Aims in the field of research and education: –Micropropagation of horticulture plants, their acclimation and preservation of cultures for research and education. –Research of the influence of abiotic and biotitic factors on the growth and evolution of horticultural plants. –Modeling of water regime in horticultural plants in drought conditions.
Acta Horticulturae et Regiotecturae Scientific journal for horticulture, landscape engineering, architecture and ecology. It contains original papers thematically oriented and related to above mentioned fields of science and research. The journal is issued twice a year.
