Crop Physiology

 

  • Knowledge of plant metabolic processes is essential to have a clear insight about the ‘Science’ involved in agricultural. Realizing this need a separate department of Plant Physiology (rechristened as Crop Physiology) was carved out from agricultural botany in the year 1965. Since then the department has grown considerably. Post graduation (M.Sc (Ag)) (Plant Physiology) was initiated in the year 1986-87 and later on Ph.D programme was also started in the year 2010-11. So far, 66 M.Sc students and two Ph.D students were passed out from the department.

      
  • The department maintains a well equipped laboratory catering the needs of other departments also. A separate new P.G. laboratory was established in the year 2013.
  • Further the department also has a well maintained green house(Crop Research) facility.
