Horticulture has evolved from simple cultivation practices to a multidisciplinary science that encompasses plant biology, genetics, agronomy, soil science, and environmental stewardship. Today, horticulture continues to play a crucial role in providing food, medicine, ornamental plants, and ecosystem services to humanity. It also contributes to the development of sustainable and productive systems for growing fruits, vegetables, ornamental plants, and other horticultural crops. Therefore, to improve the production and productivity of those products the discipline called horticulture has emerged. Horticulture department was established in 2010 under the College of Agriculture, Food and Climate Sciences of Injbara University to produce qualified and competitive graduates, to carry out problem-solving research and to do important work for the community. In addition, it is working to expand programs in the field of teaching and learning, to increase the capacity of teachers, to increase the number of experienced teachers, to strengthen the laboratories and demonstrations of students, to maintain the quality of education, and so on. It was established in the same year that it provided academic services to 42 regular students.
