Agriculture M.Sc. Agronomy

M.Sc. Agriculture in Agronomy is a postgraduate programme devised to equip a footing and scientific knowledge of crop production via adequate field management. It incorporates an in-depth understanding of crop physiology, organic farming, weed science, water & nutrient management, and other related disciplines. Agronomy, or scientific agriculture, applies several soil and plant sciences to soil management and crop production. Modern concepts in drought physiology, herbicides, crop production, and crop production, physiological aspects of crop yield, principles of physiology of crop plants, advanced irrigation agronomy, crop nutrition, advanced crop ecology, applied conservation agronomy, arid zone agronomy, agricultural research organizations, cropping and farming systems, and agro-meteorology are some of the subjects covered in this degree, Students who complete the P.G. degree in M.Sc. Agronomy will have several options in various areas.

Our School of Agriculture offers a master's degree in agriculture with Agronomy specialization that aims to provide instruction to qualified applicants on enhancing agricultural output and, as a result, food security and help society streamline more effective food production processes. By integrating research with in-depth training in Climatology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Physiology, and Plant Breeding, students are trained to apply such information to real-world settings where scientific concepts around agronomy are implemented.
