The Govt. of Uttar Pradesh established department of Soil Conservation at the Govt. Agriculture College, Kanpur, from July 1963. Forestry is one of the main components in M.Sc.

This department has many achievements to its credit and enjoys the distinction in formulating and implementation of soil conservation projects by various afforestation techniques along with other components of project like soil conservation survey, soil conservation agronomy and soil & water conservation engineering. Now to cope up the detailed need of forestry a separate department of Forestry was felt and thus this department was established in 2002 .
