Welcome to the Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science!




At the LTV faculty, education and research are focused on landscape planning, horticulture and crop production sciences. The activities are divided into six departments (top right).


The faculty is located in the centre of Sweden’s most dynamic region for agriculture, horticulture and food industry. The university centres of Lund and Malmö are nearby, as well as the big-city life of Copenhagen. The Öresund region is currently developing rapidly and the faculty has built an extensive and thriving network with local businesses as well as food industries, local authorities and governmental institutions.
