Head of Department
School of Agricultural Science






In present era to generate livelihood opportunities are yet to be generated for the all segments of farming community and rural youth of the nation. All agricultural activities specially education must be liberalize for the youth through imparting skill base knowledge of mechanization, high-tech horticulture, growing cash crops, organic farming, encouraging entrepreneurship on preservation, processing and value addition. This demands a renewed thrust for augmenting quality and relevance of higher education along with ICT so as to facilitate and undertake human capacity building for developing self-motivated Agri-professionals and Entrepreneurs. The initiation of Dr. K. N. Modi University, Newai, Tonk (Rajasthan) of establishing School of Agricultural Sciences facilitates new dimensions to agriculture growth in the north –west region of the state of Rajasthan. We at the SOAS are committed to facilitate our best to be required to develop new generation as skilled human resources that will be beneficial tools for sustainable agriculture as well as successful entrepreneurs. I believe that, with hard work, great spirit , passion and, perseverance our faculties, staff and students of SOAS can achieve the remarkable achievements in the field of Agriculture.

  •  June 05, 2020 “Celebration of International Environment Day”: 

In amidst of Covid-19 at peak, to celebrate World Environment Day in full pledge way was quite a challenge. So, School of Agricultural Sciences took an initiative to conduct E- Quiz to promote environmental knowledge and awareness -“A Step towards how to save Earth for Future Generation” on 5th June 2020.This year's World Environment Day celebrations have expected to be subdued and has confined to online quiz Instead of going to the field to plant saplings; countries has expected to conduct online activities to promote environmental protection and awareness. The team has covered all current awareness questions relevant to Environment awareness. Through E Quiz can spread-out across an expansive geographic area, an online quiz makes it possible to give everyone the same quizzing experience despite location. It also eliminates the expense of administering paper-based quizzes (think printing, scoring, delivering, and collecting). Online quizzes often allow you to create a question bank, randomise the questions and answers that are displayed. Trying to manage all of this with hard-copy quizzes would be a nightmare. More than 380 participants from various universities and colleges from PAN India participated in E-Quiz organised by School of Agricultural Sciences, DKNMU and secured marks according to performance. The event was successfully organised by Dr. Gunnjeet Kaur (Coordinator), Mr. Hutesh Sharma (Sub-Coordinator) and Mr. Dileep Gupta (Organising Secretary). All the participants filled the feedback form for the event. E- Certificates had provided to all the participants who scored more than 50 percent marks.
