Philosophy

To produce world class students with knowledge in Crop /pasture production with a well balanced education and industrial experience. The graduates must be such that they can be self-reliant in all aspects of crop
production, particularly; forage, crop improvement, crop protection, crop processing and agronomy, and the student is tailored to be a job creator and not job seeker with sufficient industrial background to t to the current need of today’s industry and practice.


Objectives

  • To inculcate into our students that crop and pasture production should be viewed and practiced with agro–business inclination.
  • To promote professional development of graduates in Agriculture, by providing students with understanding and hands-on experience of different discipline within the realms of crop/pasture production.
  • To develop crop varieties that are adaptable to our various biotic and abiotic stresses of the environment.
  • To train students who will focus on research and development in crop/pasture production.
  • To train students to meet the industrial need and achieve enhanced entrepreneurial skills.

Degrees to be Awarded

  • M.AgSE (Crop/Pasture Production and Sustainable Environment)
  • PhD. AgSE (Crop Production, Plant Breeding, Seed Technology, Crop Pathology, Crop Protection, Crop Entomology, Pasture Agronomy and Pasture Production).
