B.Sc. (Hons) in Agriculture (4 Year)

The agricultural sector has remained as an important contributor to the world economy. However, its sustainability is challenged by increasing population growth, decrease in land holding size for agriculture and global environmental change.

Program Overview

There are worldwide efforts in creating pool of knowledge to sensitize stakeholders involved in the entire spectrum of agriculture sector, generate human resource to support the sector with explicit knowledge, link farmers with academia, practitioners, policy makers and researchers in extending extension services in the supply chain. Emerging adoption of disruptive technologies in agriculture including Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has led to efficient and effective management of resources, though there is scope for meeting the growing need. Linking agriculture systems to sustainable development has challenged the efforts in adopting disruptive technologies that has provided opportunities to foray into the area of Agricultural Informatics. Globally, Agricultural Informatics, as an area, has been focusing on creating new breed of human resources to take up the renewed challenges in conceptualizing, developing, deploying and managing “farmer-centric” intelligent supply chains, proactive environmental impact oriented interventions, while ensuring sustainable agricultural systems.
