Realizing the importance of Agriculture, the Govt. of India has supportedAgriculture Research and Education through successive year plans thereby could able to achievegreen revolution lead to significant impact on our agriculture production resulting in feedingmillions of population comfortably. The human resource developed through agricultural educationhas been primarily responsible for the green revolution in agriculture. However climate change,environmental pollution, changes in the pest scenario, production of healthy food and manymore are challenging the scientists to search for suitable alternatives in agricultural practices forachieving sustainable production.In order to have quality assurance in agricultural education, Indian Council of AgriculturalResearch has initiated steps to revise Under Graduate Course Syllabi. As a part of this the VthDeans committee has submitted its report and ICAR has initiated steps to adopt therecommendations by all SAUs in the Country. Accordingly the ANGRAU has initiated steps tomake changes as per our requirements in the syllabi proposed by Vth Deans Committee dulyincorporating the important topics related Climate change, Sustainable Agriculture, OrganicAgriculture, Natural Farming, Environmental Pollution, Disaster Management etc. Efforts werealso made to train students towards employment generation by motivating them towardsentrepreneurship through Students READY programme and Student Fests "Agricarnival". Stepswere also initiated to strengthen our RAWE programme duly training them through Farmerstrainers and other progressive farmers' clusters. I should congratulate the efforts made by theDean of Agriculture, his team and all the Teachers involved in developing the course curriculumfor the Under Graduate Course B.Sc.
