HOD Message 

May I take this opportunity to introduce to you the Department of Agriculture? The vision of the department is ‘To be a leading and vibrant centre of excellence for academics, training, research, development, preservation and dissemination of knowledge in Agriculture domain’. The Department of Agriculture has recorded consistent progress in its academic, research and placement performance. It offers a range of innovatively designed programs whose curricula are constantly updated to meet the changing requirement of the farm industry and to meet the needs of major stakeholders. We believe that our students have been well accepted in their job profiles and have consistently exceeded expectations of the corporate world. In their curriculum, they are encouraged to take up mini projects to supplement theoretical knowledge with practical experience. They also undertake projects benefiting local industries or dealing with local problems. These projects enable them to understand the relevance of working in a group and also help them to realize the finer aspects and importance of teamwork. With all these inputs one finds our students hardworking, practical-oriented and effective in any work environment. On this platform, here I want to cote a golden piece of advice – “Life is a gift. Never take it for granted.”
