Department of Crop Protection was carved out of the former Department of Crop Production and Crop Protection through the Senate approved restructuring of the Departments of Crop Production and Crop Protection and Plant Physiology and Crop Ecology. The former Department of Crop Production and Crop Protection existed as a unit of the Department of Agricultural Management of the former Federal University of Technology, Abeokuta (FUTAB) that became COSTAB and later University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (UNAAB) in 1988.

Courses in these different areas are taught in the B.Agric. programme for undergraduate students while the disciplines are major areas of specialization in the postgraduate programme in the Department.
