Welcome to Department of Agriculture Sciences

Agriculture,or farming,is the science of cultivating soil,producing crops,and raising livestock. It is the nation’s largest industry, employing approximately 23 million people in over 250 career areas. However, less than one percent of the population claims farming as their occupation. The remaining agricultural jobs can be segmented into seven areas: plant sciences, animal sciences, agricultural mechanics, agricultural business, environmental services, foodscience, andnatural resources.

Scope of Agriculture

Indian agriculture is the largest private sector enterprise in the country of over 110 million farmers. It engages two-third of total work force, contributes to 26 percent of the GDP and nearly one-sixth of the total export earnings. India inherited as tagnant agriculture at the time of independence growin gatan annual rate of growth of 0.3 percent in the first half of the last centur. Modern agriculture practices are increasingly turn in gout to be knowledge-based and hence gaining expertise in the mis not an easy task for many of our rural farmers. India does require education at all levels so that Indian farmers are better equipped to handle the threats of globalization. Keeping in to account of the fact that increased productivity and production must be the sole objective of agricultural research, our scientific community is leaving no stone unturned for bringing about paradigm changes in agriculture education in the country.

Indian agriculture is the largest private sector enterprise in the country of over 110 million farmers. It engages two-third of total workforce, contributes to 26 per cent of the GDP and nearly one-sixth of the total export earnings. India inherited a stagnant agriculture at the time of independence growing at an annual rate of growth of 0.3 per cent in the first half of the last century. Modern agriculture practices are increasingly turning out to be knowledge-based and hence gaining expertise in them is not an easy task for many of our rural farmers.

VISION

To serve the nation through an innovative, commercially oriented and scientifically sound and competitive agricultural practice, manage and conserve agriculture products and pave new scientific way for future sustainable agriculture developments through research activities.

Message from the Head of the Department:

Agriculture or farming is the science of cultivating soil, producing crops and raising livestock. It is the nation’s largest industry, employing approximately 23 million people in over 250 spheres. Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy. Agricultural produce has to be increased so as to meet the gradually growing demand. Threats of food and nutritional scarcity have to be met from declining and degrading natural resources like soil and water.

Therefore, Agriculture department at COER –SM is continuously updating and equipping students with latest skill and knowledge. We are seriously engaged in imparting the education in agriculture by adapting and updating the advanced modern technologies as per the present day industry environment and challenge. We meet the industry requirements as well as developing sustainable and ethical model for global agriculture development. I am honored to be incharge of a department which aims at to provide advanced study of research and development in field of Agriculture, ultimately reinforces survival and growth of humanity. We improve students’ positive thinking, social awareness and technical knowledge to cope with the upcoming agricultural challenges in the future.
