Department of Agriculture

Agriculture is the cornerstone of civilization, providing sustenance, economic stability, and environmental balance. In our modern era, the importance of agriculture cannot be overstated. It is vital for ensuring food security, mitigating climate change through sustainable practices, fostering rural development, and driving innovation in the agri-tech sector. It stands as the fundamental pillar of our economy, engaging a significant majority of our workforce and holding substantial sway over the national financial landscape. This sector not only caters to our essential need for sustenance but also provides the primary raw materials crucial for the manufacturing industry. The ethos of education in the field of agriculture revolves around ‘Serving the Land’ and ‘Feeding the Hungry,’ reflecting its pivotal role in ensuring food security and fostering economic growth.

The Department of Agriculture is a hub of knowledge, innovation, and expertise dedicated to fostering advancements in the field of agriculture. Our academic programs, research initiatives, and community engagement efforts are geared toward addressing global agricultural challenges and contributing to a more sustainable and food-secure world.

The realm of agriculture is expansive and diverse, presenting an array of career possibilities within specialized domains. Professions in areas such as Horticulture, Floriculture, and more offer promising career trajectories. Our department’s mission is to equip aspiring agri-professionals with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate this thriving sector, thereby introducing them to a broad spectrum of opportunities available.  


Established in 2012, the Department of Agriculture at has deep roots in our region’s agricultural heritage. It was founded with a vision to advance agricultural practices, promote sustainability, and meet the needs of our evolving agricultural industry.

In its early years, the department offered a limited set of academic programs focused on core agricultural disciplines. As the demand for skilled agricultural professionals grew, the department expanded its academic offerings, incorporating specialized fields such as Horticulture, Floriculture, Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering, and more. This expansion broadened the horizons for students and researchers, providing a comprehensive education in diverse agricultural domains.

Throughout its history, the Department of Agriculture has been at the forefront of research and innovation. Our faculty members and researchers have made significant contributions to agricultural knowledge, technologies, and practices. Their work has influenced regional farming techniques, sustainable practices, and policy recommendations at both local and national levels.

Over the years, we have expanded our academic offerings, embracing specialized fields like Horticulture, Floriculture, Agricultural Economics, and more. Our focus on research and innovation has shaped farming techniques and influenced policy recommendations at local and national levels.

Community engagement has always been a priority. Through workshops, seminars, and collaborative projects, we’ve worked closely with local farmers and organizations, aiming to address agricultural challenges and enhance productivity.  


Our vision is to be a leading center of excellence in agricultural education, research, and outreach. We strive to produce graduates who are not only well-versed in agricultural sciences but are also equipped with the skills and vision to drive sustainable agricultural practices and positively influence the world.
