Department of Agriculture

 

          Agriculture has remained in headlines in all the ages after a long spell of its backwardness and stagnation. It contributes to the national economy highly in terms of production while it has opened new dimensions in other sectors of economy as well. The current challenges and threats need a fresh look in the context of changed environment especially with the emergence of world trade organizations.


          The college has been imparting access to higher education to the weaker sections of society with a mission of educational empowerment of predominating rural and agrarian population. The college decided to introduce the Agriculture as an elective subject for B.A. & B.Sc. students in 2011-12. The main purpose was to teach the latest technologies in the fields of agriculture (The main occupation of the people of this area) so that they can convert into Agri business. In the year 2015-16 college started Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Agriculture (PGDAA) to skill the students in the field of education. In the year 2016-17, B.Sc. Agriculture(4 Year professional degree) was started with an intake of 40 students batch. To strength the skill of students in the subject, the college has two laboratories which are equipped with required materials/apparatus/chemicals/tools and implements, besides it the college has experimental fields of 10 kanals where students can perform their practicals. An extra piece of land about five acres has also been allotted by the management for this purpose. The college library is well stocked with books  estimating more than rupees One lakh. Related magazines like Changi Kheti and Progressive Farming which provide current knowledge to the teachers and students.


          The main method of teaching is lecture method, with the help of blackboard, charts and models. The students are asked to prepare the assignments on various topics of agriculture. They improve their skill in the field. The teachers also update their knowledge by attending orientation, refresher courses, seminars and by visiting Kisan Melas, forest and fruit nurseries, Apiary and fish farming.

          The future plans of Agriculture Department are to impart more and more interest and knowledge in this subject so that agriculture is practically taken as Agri business.  The college is planning to set up mushroom cultivation and Vermi Compost units in future.
