Philosophy and Objectives
The philosophy and objectives of the Bachelor of Agriculture (Agric. Economics and Extension option) are similar to those of Animal production and Crop science programmes. However, the difference is in the emphasis on training graduates in agriculture who are versed in the economic aspects of farming and in agribusiness. Graduates of the department are also trained to be agents of change for the rural development.

The department has a well equipped studio with the state-of- the-art equipment.
