This subject will offer the student comprehensive view of soil, plant and animal sciences that would make them aware of the inter-linkages between these subjects.This linkage between the soil, plant and animal systems would form the basis for making viable and ecological approaches to the production of food and fiber and realize the importance of sustained agricultural systems on humanity and the environment.
Principles of Plant Agriculture
This subject explores areas in crop science and technology such as: crop physiology, genetics, and ecology, and the use of these sciences to the understanding and development of crop production systems.
Principles of Soil Science
This subject includes modules in Soil Resources; Properties of Rocks and Minerals; Weathering and Soil Formation; Soil Distribution, Classification& Soil Survey; Physical Properties of Soil; Soil Texture, Structure, Soil Water, Plant Water Use, Irrigation, Soil Temperature & Soil Aeration; Soil Chemistry; Clay Mineralogy and its Properties & Cat ions;Exchange Capacity; Soil pH and pH Management; Plant Nutrition, Soil Organic Matter; Soil Organisms, Nitrogen Cycle and Nitrogen Management; Fertilizers and Nutrient Management; Soil Erosion & Conservation; Tillage, Irrigation, Water Resources Management; Agricultural Climatology and Salt-Affected Soils.
Agricultural Markets and Products
Deals with the production, management, and marketing of agricultural products. The student will come to understand the constantly shifting patterns of food consumption, as well as the reasons and imports of such changes. The economic principles underpinning the movement of agricultural products from the producer to the consumer and the market structures that control this movement are the main areas of study.
Principles of Animal Agriculture
Animals also have an important role to play in agriculture. This impact of animals in agriculture as well their physiology, genetics, growth, reproduction and nutrition form the main modules of study in this subject.
Ethical Issues in Sustainable Agriculture
Explores the ethical, economic, social and ecological aspects of sustainable agricultural production, handling and marketing.
Practical work in Agriculture would be considered as the capstone course in Agricultural Science
For this, the students will work in teams in the planning, development, and implementation of an agricultural production initiative that could be from the areas in agronomy, horticulture or animal-related. Their knowledge of plant science, soil science, animal science and agribusiness and marketing gained in the classrooms will be transferred to the fields for solving the problems encountered in this venture. At the completion of the project, a Project report would be submitted team-wise.
