Teaching Activities

The department offers various undergraduate and postgraduate courses of vegetable science. The M.Sc. and Ph.D. students of the department usually study minor in Genetics and Plant Breeding, Entomology and Seed science & Technology in addition to Agricultural Statistics and Economics as supporting ones. The department has adopted course curricula recommended by 5th ICAR Deans’ Committee at UG level from 2016-17 academic session, while the course curricula for postgraduate degree are as per the recommendations of National Core Group. About 8-10 students in M. Sc. programme and 4-6 students in Ph.D. programme are being admitted through Combined Agriculture and Technology Entrance Tests (CATET) every year including  ICAR quota (NTS / JRF/ SRF) and foreign students nomination.
