    In May, 1951 The Council of Ministers of the USSR decreed: The Ministry of Higher Education of the USSR (c.Stoletov) and the Kursk Regional Executive Committee (c.Kovalevsky) are to found in 1951 an agricultural institute in Kursk region which will consist of the faculties of agronomy, farm mechanization and reclamation. The decree N1618 from 15.05.1951 was signed by the Head of the Council of Ministers of the USSR I.Stalin and the Manager of the Council of Ministers'activities of the USSR M.Pomaznev.

    Here begins the history of the Academy.
    The studies at the Kursk Agricultural institute began in 1956 at two faculties of agronomy and zooengineering. The first deans of these faculties were assistant professor Dmitry Anatolyevich Legnev and professor Alexander Anufrievich Sisoev.

    The rector of the new institute was assistant professor Gregory Mikhaylovich Barsukov (1951-1962).

    In 1970 according to the UNESKO's decision our institute was named after the outstanding scientist and practitioner professor I.I.Ivanov in conucation with his 100's anniversary. The Council of Ministers of the Russian Federation decided to give the Kursk Agricultural Institute this name on the 27th of June, 1970.

    In October, 1994 the status of our institute changed and it was reorganized to the Kursk State Agricultural Academy.

    7560 students are trained in our Academy, 3879 students are training at the day studies. There are 13 specialities and 36 specializations at our Academy. Scientific research work at our Academy is conducted according to the directions and topics of the Academy of Agricultural Sciences of Russia. Our Academy collaborates with 25 scientific research institutions and institutes of Russian Federation and CIS. The main scientific research programms are:
  • conservation and reproduction of soil fertility;
  • biologization of the land cultivation;
  • ecologically clean products produce;
  • raising of livestock and poultry productivity;
  • development of new agricultural machines, improvement of their reliability and depriciation resistance;
  • improvement of economic, financial and managing relations in agribusiness.
  • According to the result of scientific research work the teachers of out Academy defended 32 doctor's theses and 170 master's theses, 126 author's certificates and licences on inventions.

    The contribution of the Academy scientists into the sphere of agroecology and environmental protection was the creation (in March 1996 on the basis of KSAA together with the RF Natural Sciences Academy) of the Kursk Regional Sientific Centre of noosphere technologies, the main task of which is the elaboration and fulfilment of the programme for Russia to do away with the economical crisis and to promote sustainable agriculture on the principles of biosphere harmonic development.

    For the elaboration of the theory of natural anthropogenius soil-formation process and considerable contribution to adaptive agriculture Professor V.D.Mukha was awarded with the silver medal of the Peter 1 International Academy of Nature Science and the society For the Achievements to Revive Russian's Science and Economy. Associate Professor S.A.Shulga was awarded with the same medal for the elaboration and development of ecologically clean produce.

    Nowadays our Academy has more than 190 units of IBM-compatible equipment, 10 computer classes, a linguaphone study interdepartment analytical laboratory. The library has 417621 items, including scientific literature - 233958, teaching aids - 159627.
