Faculty of Agriculture

About the Faculty of Agriculture

Our department comprises of 13 faculty members and it if fully equipped with all necessary laboratory equipments and teaching mediums. Our students are given field training from time to time. The staff members put in their best efforts to achieve 100% success rate in every semester

HoD’s Desk

Education is training of the mind to think and B. Sc. Agriculture syllabus does not comprise of students like Agronomy, Horticulture, Soil Science, Plant Pathology, Plant Breeding & Genetics, and Entomology etc. So in order to provide excellent human resources in the field of agriculture, a well-equipped teaching environment and infrastructure is required.

After obtaining B. Sc. Agriculture degree, the students may pursue M. Sc. and take up teaching jobs or further enroll for a Ph. D. program. This course emphasizes the dream of Chairman Dr. D. K. Modi in providing the best agriculturists to the country.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the leading institute in the country providing student – responsive and training by both theoretical and practical approach in order to develop agriculture of the country and agro-industry.

  • To impart high class technical scientific and practically applicable professional education, uphold and maintain standard of academic excellence to the youth and human resources to service of society. 
  • Dissemination of technical know-how to enhance agricultural growth and rural development.
  • Socio economical upliftment of farmers.

Our Mission

Dr. K. N. Modi University believes in imparting complete theoretical and practical knowledge to its students by a two way teacher-students interaction.

    To equip the youth with professional competence in agriculture by using their intrinsic potential to cater the need of society for their upliftment and inculcate ethical values. This will create and disseminate knowledge in the sector of Agriculture and play a vital role in socio-economic development of the nation.

Results

Institute Industry Interaction

Better interaction between Institutions and Industry is the need of an hour. For students it is important because they get exposure to industry and subsequent placement in various disciplines. On the other hand, with the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to outside world, competition among the industries has become stiff. So industries also need good students who are well aware of industry standards and capable of achieving so. Therefore, there is an urgent need of interaction of industry and academics where academic institutes can prepare students for jobs in multinational companies and industry will also be benefited by possibility of receiving well-trained workforce
