Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, Botany and Chemistry is a three-year Under-Graduate degree program. This Program can give students an education in the different areas of Agronomy, Fundamental of Entomology, Plant Pathology along wiht Botany and Chemistry subjects..
Agriculture is a very comprehensive subject that involves various aspects. The entire programme is aimed at making the students understand basic aspects and practices involved in agriculture from seed to seed i.e., production aspects, protection aspects, storage and marketing aspects of an agricultural product. It also involves economic aspects such as cost of production, cost of selling, profit etc, .The student will also able to establish an entrepreneur on his own and help to generate employment to others. By learning extension methodology to transfer of technology, he will acquire good communication skills and equip himself with personality development and become centre of attraction which helps him to become a successful entrepreneur.
This course also makes the students understand the basic requirements such as soil, water, nutrients, implements, labor, plant protection chemicals, finance and their management. The students should understand basic concepts of soil genesis, soil fertility, its various parameters of fertility status and their estimation and soil fertility conservation methods for sustainable agriculture.
The students should understand the life line of crop production i.e, Irrigation – sources of irrigation, water requirement of crops and or plants- critical stages of moisture stress agriculture with different regimes of water supply – abundance to scarcity. Comprehensive and integrated water management practices, water conservation practices particularly in dry land agriculture, rain fed agriculture etc,.
The students should be well versed with production aspects of agriculture, such as crop selection , varietal selection within crops based on resources and weather parameters , such as irrigation resources, rainfall quantity, distribution , droughts, floods , saline waters etc,.
