Agriculture

Department of Agriculture was established in Year 2010 in this college. The intake capacity of the department is 80 seats (Two units). The duration of course is 4 years and academic judgment of students is based on semester system. There are one permanent and six adhoc staff members from different fields of specialization having quality experience in research along with two laboratory attendants. Department has four classrooms and four labs along with experimental area.

Different teaching methods like Lectures, Demonstrations, Discussions, Presentations, assignments have been used to teach students. Minor research project is also given to student in Final Year so that they acquaint with Journals & research papers; Synopsis, Dissertation & research paper writing through field work/lab work. Different fields of researches are Crop Production, Fruit Quality Analysis, Vegetable Production, Vegetable/Fruit processing & storage and Agri-Extension Work. One month internship in Agriculture related industry is an important part of their curriculum. Apart from the above mentioned methods, several types of educational tours are also organized for proper practical knowledge. Field work is also a part of their routine practical in which they are acquainted with different methods of raising crops. Department is practicing collaboration with different industries for the training, knowledge as well as placement of students. Under the same we have already collaborated with Anand Energy and Superfine Agro Industries.  

Recreational tours, farewell, sports activities and celebration of different festivals have also been arranged from time to time for their refreshment and over all personality development of students. 

Departmental students have achieved University positions in academic and co-curricular activities. Students are also active members of different social clubs run by our college and take part in different activities timely.

More and quality campus placement is also our main agenda. Apart from these we have a plan of setting Agro Observatory and different farmer helping sites.
