    Over the time course, under the influence of social-economic reorganizations and the development of education, the organization of agronomic scientific research and academic life passed by various stages of the institutional structuring process. The first agricultural scientific institution was founded in 1886 as the Central Agronomic Station, in 1927 becoming part of the Agronomic Research Institute of Romania.
