HoD’s Desk

From the last two three decades agriculture is facing various problems like deterioration of soil health, emergence of new diseases, pests and weeds, disaster implications of climate, shifting of cultivable land to non-farm activities and unavailability of manpower in time. Commercialization of agriculture in view of changing economic growth of our nation is further arousing new alarming situations to overcome the need for appropriate agro-techniques and agro-management practices to mitigate food and nutritional security, poverty, diversified market demand, export opportunity and environmental concerns.

In present era to generate livelihood opportunities are yet to be generated for the all segments of farming community and rural youth of the nation. All agricultural activities specially education must be liberalize for the youth through imparting skill base knowledge of mechanization, high-tech horticulture, growing cash crops, organic farming, encouraging entrepreneurship on preservation, processing and value addition. This demands a renewed thrust for augmenting quality and relevance of higher education along with ICT so as to facilitate and undertake human capacity building for developing self-motivated Agri-professionals and Entrepreneurs. The initiation of Dr. K. N. Modi University, Newai, Tonk (Rajasthan) of establishing School of Agriculture Sciences facilitates new dimensions to agriculture growth in the north –west region of the state of Rajasthan. We at the SOAS are committed to facilitate our best to be required to develop new generation as skilled human resources that will be beneficial tools for sustainable agriculture as well as successful entrepreneurs. At the last but not least I urged up on all faculties, staff and students of SOAS to work hard with great sprit to bring this school to new height in the coming days.

Our Vision

To radically transform the youth to builds secure, sustainable, innovative, commercially oriented and competitive agricultural sector.

Our Mission

  • To impart high class technical scientific and practically applicable professional education which uphold and maintain standard of academic excellence to the youth and human resources to serve the society for agro-economic growth.
  • To equip the youth with professional competence in agriculture by using their intrinsic potential to cater the need of society for upliftment of sustainable agriculture production.

Events and Seminars

3. “Celebration of International Environment Day”: 5th June , 2020:

World Environment Day 2020 celebrations have expected to be different as people would be taking part in online activities and Programmes due to COVID-19 lockdown. School of Agricultural Sciences took an initiative to conduct E- Quiz to promote environmental knowledge and awareness -“A Step towards to save Earth for Future Generation” on 5th June 2020.This year's World Environment Day celebrations have expected to be subdued and has confined to online quiz Instead of going to the field to plant saplings; countries has expected to conduct online activities to promote environmental protection and awareness. The team has covered all current awareness questions relevant to Environment awareness. Through E Quiz can spread-out across an expansive geographic area, an online quiz makes it possible to give everyone the same quizzing experience despite location. It also eliminates the expense of administering paper-based quizzes (think printing, scoring, delivering, and collecting).Online quizzes often allow you to create a question bank, randomize the questions that shown, and randomize the answers that are displayed. Trying to manage all of this with hard-copy quizzes would be a nightmare. More than 380 participants from various universities and colleges from PAN India participated in E-Quiz organized by School of Agricultural Sciences, DKNMU and secured marks according to performance. The event was successfully organized by Dr. Gunnjeet Kaur, Coordinator Mr. Hutesh Sharma;, Sub-Coordinator and Mr. Dileep Gupta, Organizing Secretary. All the participants filled the feedback form for the event. E- Certificates had provided to all the participants who scored more than 50 percent marks.
