Main Article Content
The article is devoted to the two anniversaries which are going to be celebrated in 2019 – the 150th anniversary of Novo-Olexandriya Institute of Agriculture and Forestry (Poland) and the 125th anniversary of the first Department of Genetic Soil Science established at this Institute by Professor V.V. Dokucha-iev. Despite the exclusive role of this educational institution in the history of Poland and Ukraine, its history still remains a little--studied scientific issue. The aim of this publication is to study the activities of Professor V.V. Dokuchaiev on the reformation of Novo-Olexandriya Institute from 1892 till 1895 on the basis of the archival documents exported from Poland to Kharkiv at the beginning of the First World War. Available documents allow us to fully appreciate the scope of the reformatory activities of Professor V.V. Dokuchaiev on the reorganization of the Institute. The activities of the scientist aimed at realizing his idea of uniting agrarian education, science and practice contributed to the trans-formation of the Institute into a recognized world-known school for training highly qualified agronomists and foresters.
