 Laboratories

The Faculty of Agriculture currently has 31 labs, one integrated lab is managed by several departments and other labs which are managed individually by the related department. Each lab has one chief researcher who works together with other fellow researchers in respected field and supported by lab assistant and technician. At the moment, not each lab has its own technician, thus one technician might work for several labs within one department.

Those labs have been utilised not only by students of  Faculty of Agriculture, but also of other faculties within Hasanuddin University, and even from other partner local institutions such as: agricultural high school, Makassar Islamic university, University of 45 and University of Muslim Indonesia.
