A postgraduate program in plant protection was introduced for the first time in the university campus in this college in the year 1983 with entomology and plant pathology disciplines offering a combined course catering to the requirements of the personnel engaged in the state dept of agriculture.  Subsequently Ph.D. programmes were introduced in the disciplines of Agronomy and Genetics and Plant Breeding during 1992-93.In addition, other Ph.D. programmes in the departments of Extension Education [2007-2008], Soil Science & Agril. Chemistry [2009-2010], Entomology [2009-2010], and Agril.

Student involvement in RAWE / equivalent programme:

 

Knowledge coupled with experience makes the education purposeful and useful.  The best way for the students of agriculture is to acquire adequate practical skills so that he/she can deliver the goods as per the requirements of the farmer. Realising the need, ANGRAU introduced an innovative concept of RAWE programme in under – graduate curriculum in the academic year 1979-80. The final year students are deputed in the 7th Semester to stay in the villages along with the host farmers, work with them, and understand their problems to apply the latest agricultural technology with skills and confidence. The programme was quite successful for the last 30 years.


Recently, a new concept called Experiential Learning Programme (ELP) based on ICAR recommendations was introduced to train the students in order to make them self entrepreneurs through acquired  agro based industrial knowledge.
