The diversity and complexity of agricultural careers require a combined understanding of many sub disciplines within the field. The General Agriculture programme is designed for students who love to work outdoors to maintain crop and livestock. It offers a wide array of theoretical and practical classes in general principles of field crop production and animal husbandry. Environmental concerns, weather, soil fertility, varietal differences, cultural practices, pests management, plant and animal pathology are some of the areas of focus.
The programme aims at creating competent agriculturist who can work directly with crops or animals and implement different techniques for growing and harvesting food. Also increase the number of skilled agricultural officers in the country in order to facilitate transfer of agricultural knowledge and technology to farmers leading to an increase in local food production.
