Overview

B.Sc (Honours) Agriculture is a four-year bachelor's degree that focuses on research and practice in agricultural sciences, which would include disciplines like genetics and plant breeding, agricultural microbiology, soil science, plant pathology, and so on. The agrarian sector is a major contributor to the global economy, but it has been significantly challenged in recent times by population growth, limited resources, global climate change, and dwindling farming space.
 
Our agricultural enthusiasts hone their skills at K.R. Mangalam University's School of Agricultural Science(SOAS) in order to close the gap between agriculture and human resources. Students are able to gain a fundamentally important understanding of the industry through rigorous site visits and case studies on livestock and crops.
 
K.R. Mangalam University(KRMU) also provides Rural Agriculture Work Experience (RAWE 7 Weeks). Students are given the opportunity to interact with agronomists and experiment in order to bring about a revolution in the field of agriculture. Students gain a better understanding of reality through live experiments, farm visits, and interactions with farmers and scientists. We also offer the opportunity to witness the implementation of new and innovative agricultural techniques in order to meet the population's ever-increasing demand.
 
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Agriculture at SOAS have numerous career options after they graduate, including positions in central and state government, Krishi Vigyan Kendras, agricultural and other universities, research institutions, and more.
