The vast arable land of India is still providing employment to millions of people. According to an estimate, about 64 percent people are directly and indirectly connected to the region. Although, in view of the good opportunities in the IT and management sector, till a few years ago, students did not take the agriculture sector seriously in terms of career, but now seeing the opportunities and opportunities of these big companies in this field, has become serious.

The vast arable land of India is still providing employment to millions of people. According to an estimate,Guest Posting about 64 percent people are directly and indirectly connected to the region. Although, in view of the good opportunities in the IT and management sector, till a few years ago, students did not take the agriculture sector seriously in terms of career, but now seeing the opportunities and opportunities of these big companies in this field, has become serious.

Scope has increased
Rajendra Agricultural University, Senior Agricultural Scientist (Soil Science) Dr. BB Mishra says that the agricultural sector has grown a lot today. Whether the monsoon rages or the drought or flood disaster - agricultural scientists have an alternative solution. How can agricultural production capacity be improved with the help of management plans and better technical tools? Agricultural scientists have an important role in this regard.
Agricultural science is directly related to biological science. Agricultural scientists seek the help of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and other branches of science for the development of the agricultural sector. The best example of this is biotechnology. Agricultural scientists also work towards combating and conserving the increasing exploitation of natural resources.

Branches related to agriculture
Agricultural Science, Veterinary Science, Animal Husbandry (Animal Product Technology), Fisheries, Horticulture, Sericulture, Forestry etc. are the main branches of the agricultural sector. Its associate branches are Agrophysics, Plant Fertilization, Aquaculture, Genetic Engineering, Environmental Science, Food Science, Irrigation and Water Management, Soil Science or Agrology etc. Apart from this, today home science is also considered an important part of agricultural education. This is the reason that most home science-related colleges are affiliated with Agricultural Universities.

Available course
Most agricultural colleges in the country offer PG courses and Ph.D. courses at all three levels, in addition to the BAC in Agriculture or BSc Honors in Agriculture. Some universities enroll only in post-graduates and Ph.D. For example, you can enroll only in PG and Ph.D. courses at Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Ijajatnagar, UP etc. At the same time, the National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal, and Allahabad Agricultural Institute teach at all three levels.
