Agricultural Economics & Extension

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS & EXTENSION

The department was created in August 2005 when the present departmental structure was for the Faculty of Agriculture. At present, the department has many units and performs credibly well wit the increase in number of the academic staff.

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.

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