What will you become?
his role involves managing and overseeing the business aspects of agricultural production, including finances, marketing, and sales. Agribusiness managers may work for large agribusinesses, cooperatives, or government agencies.
Agricultural consultants provide advice and guidance to farmers, agribusinesses, and other agricultural organizations. They may specialize in areas such as crop management, livestock management, or sustainable agriculture.
Agricultural engineers design and develop equipment, structures, and systems for agricultural production. They may work on projects such as irrigation systems, crop storage facilities, or animal housing.
Agricultural scientists conduct research to improve agricultural production, develop new crops or products, and address environmental concerns related to agriculture. They may work for universities, research institutions, or government agencies.
Agricultural economists study the economic aspects of agricultural production, including market trends, trade policies, and supply and demand. They may work for government agencies, agribusinesses, or research institutions.
Precision Agriculture Specialist
Precision agriculture specialists use technology such as GPS, sensors, and data analytics to optimize agricultural production. They may work for agribusinesses, technology companies, or government agencies.
A large population and rising urban and rural income is driving the demand. External demand is driving export from agriculture sector.
Demand for agricultural inputs such as hybrid seeds and fertilizers and allied services like warehousing and cold storages is increasing in India at a fast pace.
The govt. announced a PLI scheme for the food processing sector with an incentive outlay of Rs 10,900 crore (US$ 1,484 million) over a period of six years starting from FY22.
The Krishi UDAN 2.0 scheme proposes assistance and incentive for movement of agri-produce by air transport.
High proportion of agricultural land, diverse agro-climatic conditions encourage cultivation of different crops
The Indian agricultural sector is predicted to increase to US$ 24 billion by 2025 generating 2.0Lakhs jobs every year.
In production, India ranks 2nd in paddy & wheat and 1st in pulses in the world including neighbouring countries. India is the world's largest sugar-producing country and holds the second position in rice production only after China
India's food processing industry is expected to reach a market size of USD 580.82 billion by 2028, creating new opportunities for farmers and agribusinesses.
The food processing industry in India is expected to generate 9 million jobs by 2025.
Integration of Technology and Management with ICAR Standards.

Our laboratories are fully equipped with state-of-the-art instruments that boast advanced technology, such as HPLC, UV Visible Spectrophotometer, CO 2 Incubator, PCR, Nanodrop, and software utilizing molecular modeling.
Scope of Drone Technology
Drones with advanced cameras and sensor technology can be employed for crop health and growth monitoring, enabling farmers to detect problems such as nutrient deficiencies, pest infestations, or irrigation issues in their crops at an early stage.
Employing drones for creating high-resolution maps of agricultural fields can provide farmers with valuable insights into variations in soil moisture, fertility, and crop yield. This data can be utilized by farmers to optimize the application of fertilizer and water, reducing wastage and maximizing yields.
Planting and spraying
Drones can be equipped with seed dispensers or spray nozzles to plant seeds or apply pesticides and fertilizers. This can reduce labor costs and increase efficiency, especially for large-scale operations.
Drones can be used to monitor livestock, such as counting animals, monitoring their health, or identifying areas where they may be stressed or overcrowded.
Drones can be used to survey agricultural land, identifying features such as boundaries, waterways, and topography. This can help farmers plan their operations and optimize their use of land.
