Agriculture

Father of our Nation said, “The soul of India rests in villages”. And villages look to agriculture for their existence. And yet, no other profession, in recent times, has been neglected so much or even abandoned, as agriculture, although it is still the backbone of the economy of a country like ours. Enchanted by the gloss and glamour of new areas supposedly endowed with more potential for sky high earnings, like IT, Bioinformatics etc, agriculture has been sadly relegated to the background and a course like B.Sc.- Agriculture or Agricultural engineering trends are seen by most as poor alternatives to other disciplines of Engineering or Technology courses. It is high time we realized the fact that a degree in Agriculture or related fields like Fisheries, Horticulture, Agricultural Management and Agricultural Technology can open new vistas and a variety of career options.
