The University established two research centers: Scientific and educational innovative center of agrobiological researches and Scientific and innovative center of phytosanitary monitoring, protection and quarantine of plants, where the research work of the faculty scientists is carried out
The Scientific and Production Center for Grain Farming named after A.I. Baraeva, North Kazakhstan Agricultural Experimental Station, was organized for students of "agronomy", "soil science and Agrochemistry", "plant Protection and quarantine".
The above training bases areprovided with modern instruments and equipment, infrastructure and high level communications.
The Department implements scientific - educational projects in the framework of the European Union program "ERASMUS+", which, in conjunction with foreign universities,are developed and implemented in the educational process of the master educational program of the specialty "agronomy" project "EPASAT", and develop internal quality assurance system on the project "IQAT".
