On November 28, Zhejiang University College of Agriculture and Biotechnology (CAB) celebrated the 110th anniversary of its founding on Zijingang Campus.

Over the past 110 years, CAB has developed in sync with the times. It established China’s first horticulture and entomology, set up the first isotope laboratory in China’s agricultural system and published China’s first research article in agricultural sciences in the journal of Science. It boasts two national “first-class disciplines” and two A+ disciplines.

 

“In the past 110 years, College of Agriculture and Biotechnology has been unswervingly seeking truth, forging ahead, striving for innovation and enhancing the well-being of people,” said REN Shaobo, Chairman of the Zhejiang University Council, hoping that CAB will take the 110th anniversary as a springboard for the building of a world-class agricultural college, thus making more contributions to sustainable development in the new era.

 

ZHOU Guofu, former Deputy Secretary of the CPC Zhejiang Provincial Committee and Chairman of the 10th Zhejiang Committee of CPPCC, expected that CAB will adhere to the integration of industry, academia and research and commit itself to collaborative innovation. “Agriculture is the great cause of mankind, and Zhejiang University, as my alma mater, is our shared spiritual home,” added ZHOU Guofu.
