Agriculture plays a crucial role in the Indian economy. Almost 60 percent of the Indian workforce is involved in agriculture, but that has not resulted in substantial growth of the sector. In fact, its contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has dwindled to less than 25 percent. It is time that students explore this largely unknown arena.
The programme is of 4 years, spread across 8 semesters. During each semester students will face different sets of theoretical subjects as well as practical workshops along with laboratory sessions.
The demand for trained professionals in the field of agriculture is high in Central/ State governments, seed/ pesticide/ fertilizer companies, banks etc. After completing B. Sc. (Agri.) candidates can look for higher education programs such as MBA in Agri-Business, M. Sc. in Crop Physiology, Genetics & Plant Breeding, Plant Protection, Fruit Science, Vegetable Science, Floriculture & Landscaping, Soil Science etc.
