The study of the soils of Uzbekistan with a clear plan and purpose is closely related to the creation of the National University of Uzbekistan (formerly Turkestan, Central Asian, Tashkent State). Indeed, the founding of the Research Institute of Geobotany and Soil Science at the University in 1920 underlies the above. In 1920-1932, the founder of the institute was Professor N.A. Dimo, Professor M.A. Orlov, research scientists N.B. Bogdanovich, M.A. Pankov D.M. With the participation of Klavdienko and others, the irrigated lands of such countries as Uzbekistan, Karakalpakstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan were perfectly studied and soil maps were compiled for various purposes. An exhaustive description of the main soil types scattered in these regions was given. All these maps and all the scientific data on soils, of course, were the basis for creating a well-planned system of farming in the development of agriculture at that time.

The creation of soil science in the system of the geological and geographical faculty of the university in 1935 indicates that the study of soils in Uzbekistan has turned into a huge network of sciences of national importance. The Department of Soil Science was transferred to the Faculty of Biology in 1949, in the same year the department "Agronomy" was created at this faculty, and since then the faculty has been called the Faculty of Biology and Soil Science. During this time, the teaching staff of the Department of Soil Science carried out research work worthy of attention. Including M.A. Orlov was considered the founder of the Department of Soil Science, all his scientific activities were aimed at studying the genesis and properties of anthropogenic (oasis) soils, which were formed under the influence of irrigation and agriculture. Academician S.N. Rizhov, later associate professor XA Abdullaev, in his research focused on assessing the cultivation of irrigated lands, the importance of humus in increasing productivity, and the problems of its management.

During the 1960-1970s. employees of the department - B.D.Mikhailov, K.Gafurov, L.Tursunov, V.Saifutdinova, L.Salkova, N.Kavkhoyans and other graduate students conducted research work on the improved study of soils in the middle and lower reaches of the Zarafshan Valley, including the Kattakurgan, Khatyrchinskaya, Zirobulakskaya, Karnabskaya deserts, Bukhara and Karakul oases. During this period, soil, soil-erosion, soil-reclamation maps of hundreds of farms (1: 10000, 1: 25000) were compiled and submitted for practical use. Based on the data collected at that time, S. Gafurov, L. Tursunov, N. Yakubov, A. Niyazov, A. Abdiev defended their candidate dissertations. Another notable study of this period was carried out by the associate professor of the department L.V. Valiev, Under the leadership of the Tursunovs, scientific work was carried out to study the rainfed lands of the Chirakchi district of the Kashkadarya region.

Since 1980, under the guidance of Associate Professor H.H. Abdullaev studied the soils of the Chatkal mountain formations using the example of the Chatkal biosphere reserve, under the guidance of Associate Professor L. Tursunov, the soils of the mountain formations of Turkestan were studied using the example of the Zaamin "People's Park" and the Zaamin reserve, and, finally, the soils of the mountain formations of Turkestan. During the period of research, the law of soil formation and the properties of all mountain soil types were comprehensively studied, maps of soil erosion were compiled, and A. Nazarov, M. Fakhrutdinova and S. Yusupov and H. Kungirov defended their Ph.D. theses.

It is known that the role of human agricultural activity in the formation of soil, the study of its subsequent genesis, evolution and properties is significant. The staff of the department also turned their attention to the study of this issue. In particular, associate professor of the department H. Abdullaev, under the guidance of teacher T. Abdrakhmanov, studied the structure and properties of gray-brown soils in every possible way, defended his Ph.D. thesis on the basis of data obtained over many years. In particular, V.Yu. Sayfutdinov under the leadership of Academician S.N. Ryzhova for many years studied the possibility of restoring the initial state (evolution) of these soils used by man on the example of rainfed soils under the influence of natural factors, and defended her thesis. For many years, D. Kamilova has been studying changes in soil properties in various agricultural backgrounds and, on the basis of the collected data, she defended her thesis.

From 1961 to 1967, the Department of Agrochemistry was headed by Doctor of Agricultural Sciences, Professor N.P. Malinkin. The invaluable contribution of N.P. Malinkin in the creation of a cotton fertilization system. During their time at the university, these two great scientists trained many scholars and founded their own schools.

From 1968 to 1995, the meeting was headed by Doctor of Agricultural Sciences, professor, full member of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, member of the International Academy of Informatics of the Academy of Sciences of New York, agricultural worker working in Uzbekistan, member of the International Society of Soil Scientists and the Fertilizer Center around the world, Dzhurakul Sattorovich Sattarov.

In 1995-1996, the department was headed by a student of Zh. Sattarov B.S. Musaev. Despite his young age, Musaev continued to work on laboratory and field experiments at the department. He wrote many textbooks and a textbook "Agrochemistry".

Since 1996, the head of the department was Doctor of Agricultural Sciences, famous soil scientist, Professor S. Abdullaev. He has done more research on land reclamation and has had good results. Many textbooks, teaching aids and monographs have been published. On December 1, 2008 , the Departments of Soil Science and Agrochemistry were merged and renamed into Soil Science.

Currently, 1 academician of the ANUz, 5 doctors of sciences and 9 candidates of sciences and doctors of philosophy (PhD) are working in the field of soil science.

To this day, the Department of Soil Science of the National University of Uzbekistan has been headed by the following scientists:

  •          1935-1962 - Prof. M. A. Orlov
  •          1962-1968 - Academician S.N. Ryzhov.

  •          2015-2015 - Assoc. S.Sidiқov 
  •          Since 2020, the head of the department is Professor Z. Jabbarov.

Professors and teachers of soil science and agrochemistry conduct their classes at a high level with the effective use of ICT and innovative technologies.

Today the staff of the department conducts research on the basis of several state grants from the Republican Center for Science and Technology. Scientific research of the department for almost 90 years is reflected in dozens of monographs and textbooks, hundreds of scientific, popular science articles and brochures.

The Department of Soil Science, organized at the National University of Uzbekistan, has been preparing highly qualified specialists not only for Uzbekistan, but also for Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, as well as for the Russian Federation, China, Vietnam, Korea, Egypt, Iraq, Cuba for over 70 years.

At present, soil science and its following directions are being formed in Uzbekistan. These include: geography, evolution and cartography, soil micromorphology and mineralogy, soil chemistry, agrophysics and soil technology, soil grading, soil reclamation, soil agrochemistry, soil erosion, soil biology and microbiology, soil ecology and other similar areas. It is no exaggeration to say that the founders of these areas and the prominent scientists, doctors of sciences, professors and academicians who develop them are precisely the former students of the Department of Soil Science named after Mirzo Ulugbek.

For almost 90 years of activity, the department has trained several hundred specialists in soil science and agrochemistry, and today they are actively working in higher and secondary specialized educational institutions in all regions of the country, in all sectors of the economy. They work in different countries of Central Asia and the CIS, even in non-CIS countries. Vladimir and Irina Lukina are researchers at the University of California, USA. O. Kazak - Researcher, New York University, prof. M.A. Mazirov is the Head of the Department of Soil Science of the Russian Agrarian University, Professor S.M. Elyubaev, associate professors O. Tuyakov and U.B. Bekturaev heads the departments of the Pedagogical Institute of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Former graduates of this department work in Uzbekistan with 4 district khakims, 2 deputies of the Oliy Majlis and several heads of farms in their profile.

In addition to training at the Department of Soil Science, a high level of research work is carried out. Studied scientific problems in cooperation with many countries. In particular, Moscow State University, Dokuchaev Institute of Soil Science, Moscow Agricultural Academy named after Timiryazev, Sukhum Institute of Subtropical Plants, Azerbaijan University, Research Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry of the Siberian Branch of Russia, University of Warsaw (Poland), University of Bonn. (Germany), Alexander (Germany) The staff of the department is in close contact with the field of science. Professors, graduate students and students often traveled to each other's universities for research trips and internships, and even now such connections have not disappeared.

Since its inception, the Department of Soil Science has focused on studying the genesis, geography, evolution and properties of soil types on the territory of Uzbekistan, developing the foundations of their protection, and has also created its own scientific schools in several countries.

Academician S. N. Ryzhov deeply studied and analyzed the agrophysical, especially water-physical properties of the main soils of Uzbekistan and created a scientific school in this area.

Under the guidance of Associate Professor V.U. Saifutdinov, extensive research has been carried out in the field of studying the fertility of arid lands.

Under the guidance of Professor L. Tursunov in the field of genesis, evolution, geography and increasing the fertility of the main soils of Uzbekistan was comprehensively studied on the example of soils of all regions of the republic. As a result of these studies, their genesis, evolution and fertility were assessed, taking into account the soil and climatic conditions of the republic.

Since 1970, under the leadership of Academician S. N. Ryzhov, Associate Professor L. Tursunov began a comprehensive study of the soils of the lower reaches of the Amudarya-Khorezm oasis. This research was led by L. Tursunov from 1980 to 2011. As a result of these studies, not only the genesis, evolution, morphology and other properties of the soils of the Khorezm oasis were studied, but also the lower reaches of the Amu Darya - all the irrigated lands and soil cover of Karakalpakstan.

Based on this research L. Tursunov, S. Abdullaev wrote doctoral dissertations, A. Ablyazov, B. Faizullaev, I. Ochilov, I. Siddikov, K. Nora, Ali Askar Fathi, Naman Hasan Hammadi, Khakkulov F., Si Chun, Sh. Isaacov defended their dissertations. Monographs of L. Tursunov "Soil conditions of irrigated lands in the Western part of Uzbekistan" (1981), L. Tursunov, S. Abdullaev "Soil-physical characteristics of the lower reaches of the Amudari" (1987) were written on the basis of long-term data.

Professor L. Tursunov, continuing the ideas of academician S.N. Rizhova, based on a thorough study of the water-physical properties of irrigated lands, managed to make changes in the classification and hydromodular zoning of their permeability, and without exaggeration, we can say that he created a scientific school of soil physics. In the field of studying mountain soils, research was carried out by associate professors of the department M. Fakhrutdinova, D. Kamilova, T. Turaev, Sh. Iskhakova.

The following important results have been achieved as a result of the work of the aforementioned scientists:

1. The theory of the formation of a dense arable layer on irrigated lands under the influence of anthropogenic factors has been developed and practical measures to combat it have been substantiated.

2. The optimal lower limit of soil moisture has been established for the main agricultural crops grown on rainfed and irrigated lands.

3. Hydro-modular zoning of irrigated lands was carried out, reflecting the needs of agricultural crops in water during the growing season.

4. It is possible to apply in practice soil-protecting and resource-saving technologies that can improve the physical properties of irrigated lands.

Zh. Sattarov's activity is connected with the solution of a number of scientific problems in science. According to him, the timing of the washing of saline soils with various salts in the country is scientifically substantiated. These guidelines have been successfully applied in production so far.

The creation of a technology for applying fertilizers to saline soils is also associated with the name of J. Sattarov. His greatest contribution to the development of agricultural sciences is the creation of a new branch of agrochemical science. The effective use of the fertilization system of varieties, developed by J. Sattarov, is a huge contribution to solving the problem of increasing yields and improving the quality of cotton by feeding it in accordance with domestic demand. Proof of this is the special course "Sortagrochemistry" for masters of the Department of Soil Science.

Representatives of this school are associate professor S. Sidikov, students of the scientist and teachers S. Makhammadiev, Yu. Kasimov. All achievements in this area have been achieved on the experimental field located in the Botanical Garden of the Department of Agrochemistry of the National University of Uzbekistan.

The department carries out significant research work to study soil pollution, and a special scientific school has been created in this direction. Professor H.H. Tursunov, L.A. Gafurova, associate professor T.A. Abdrakhmanov, Z. Jabbarova widely study soil pollution under the influence of chemical, technogenic, cosmogenic and anthropogenic factors, their types, sources and methods of elimination. In this area, the following results have been achieved:

1. The mineralogical composition of the main soils of Uzbekistan has been studied in connection with the petrographic composition of their rocks and Quaternary deposits.

2. The analysis of the composition of light and heavy minerals of different sizes, as well as primary and secondary minerals of a fine crystalline or amorphous state, the patterns of recrystallization and formation

3. Data were collected on the sources of soil contamination.

4. The level of soil pollution was determined under the influence of industrial and household waste, vehicles, oil and oil products, as well as applied mineral and organic fertilizers.

5. When determining the rate, the degree of soil pollution, the possibilities of using modern GIS technologies were shown.
