| The Faculty of Agriculture was
one of three faculties established at the same time
as the foundation of Ubon Ratchathani College in
1987. It was first established as "the Department
of Agriculture" in Ubon Ratchathani College
which was one of the campuses of Khon Kaen University.
In 1990, the Ubon Ratchathani campus was declared
to be land-grant university no. 19 in the country
and the Department of Agriculture was changed to
the Faculty of Agriculture, Ubon Ratchathani University.

accepted the first group of 38 students in 1988
and after becoming a faculty in 1990, the number of
students increased to 80 studying in 3 departments,
Department of Animal Science, Department of Horticulture
and Department of Agronomy. In 2000, two more departments,
Fisheries and Agro-Industry, were established.
