The Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation – State Research Institute (IUNG-PIB) is a continuation of 150 years of the activity of agricultural centers in Puławy – thus representing the oldest tradition on the European continent in this regard.

IUNG was founded in 1950 as one of the institutions created after the division of the National Institute of Agriculture. Currently, IUNG has the status of state research institute operating under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD). As a distinguished center of agricultural sciences in the country and abroad, it was twice awarded the status of EU Centre of Excellence (PROLAND in 2002-2006 and PROFICIENCY in 2009- 2014). The research conducted at the Institute covers a wide scope related to crop production, environmental protection and management of rural areas. In the field of environmental research, the Institute has the largest agrometeorological, soil, and environmental databases in the country. IUNG-PIB confers degrees in the field of agricultural sciences in two disciplines: agriculture and horticulture.
