There is a gradual increase in scope for agronomists. M.Sc. (Agriculture) professionals find ways to increase the output of crops used in these products. They also balance increased agricultural output with protection and preservation of soil, water, and ecosystems.
The 2 years duration is divided into 4 semesters, during each semester, students face separate sets of theoretical subjects as well as practical sessions associated with those subjects. Apart from theoretical subjects and practical sessions, seminars and research work/project also plays an important role in M.Sc. (Agriculture) program. Based on the choice of subjects, students may specialize in disciplines within the sector of Agriculture Science.
Many Government, as well as private job opportunities exist for passing out professionals. In the govt. sector, state agriculture departments recruit pass outs to fill up Officer level posts. Colleges hire M.Sc. folks to work as Lecturers. Government Banks also hire them to fill up Officer level posts (that primarily deals with Agriculture related loans). In the private sector, graduates find jobs as managers at plantations, as officers at fertilizer manufacturing firms, agriculture machinery industries, agricultural products marketing firms, food processing firms etc.
