Masters of Agriculture

M.Sc. (Agriculture)

Pass-outs in various master’s disciplines of agriculture contribute towards academia and industry apart from public and private organizations by ensuring sustainability of agriculture and food security through production and protection technologies. It was this mission that the School has introduced and created facilities for developing human resources in the following important disciplines in agricultural sciences

Eligibility and admission

B.Sc. (Agriculture)/ B.Sc. Agri. (Hons.)


M.Sc Agriculture (Plant Pathology)

Pathogens are responsible for causing alarming losses to the crops and often result in the form of epidemics that are extremely difficult to control. Human resource development in this area would be of great help to check the damage by various plant diseases, thus securing quantity and quality of food and their products.


M.Sc Agriculture (Horticulture)

Fruits and vegetables hold great scope and potential to ensure nutritional security and also provide handsome benefits to the progressive growers. The field of landscaping and floriculture has also become very remunerative both at national and global levels. The expertise in the field has great demand in the related fields apart from its indispensible role in the academia.


M.Sc Agriculture (Agronomy)

Agronomy is considered mother of all sciences in agriculture. The students will be imparted training in various aspects of crop production, farming system, organic farming, geoinformatics, nano-technology and precision farming for the benefit of academia and industry.

M.Sc Agriculture (Entomology)

Crop protection is a very important aspect of agriculture. Insect-pests incur huge losses to the standing crops and stored grains and their products. Pass-outs in Entomology will be performing a valuable role both in academia and industry by preventing losses caused due to insects through innovative technologies with least disturbance to the environment and non-target organisms apart from ensuring better yields from the useful insects such as honeybees and silk worms.

Curriculum highlights

The curriculum varies, from learning about agricultural meteorology, soil science, production and protection of crops, plant breeding, post- harvest technology and agriculture economics as well as statistics with a balanced summation of theory and practical depending upon the research plan.

  • Tropical and Dry land Horticulture
  • Sub-Tropical and Temperate Fruit Production
  • Production Technology of warm season Vegetable Crops
  • Seed Production Technology of vegetable crops
  • Postharvest Technology for Fruit Crops
  • Principles and practices of soil fertility and nutrient management
  • Manures, Fertilizers and Agro-chemicals
  • Production Technology of warm season Vegetable Crops

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.
