Agronomy Department Overview

The main focus of the Agronomy Department is development of agro-technologies for economically important medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) by introduction, domestication, crop geometry and nutrient management. The department's emphasis includes designing and perfecting new cropping systems of MAPs with food, vegetable and spice crops. Other areas of research are water management, weed management and growth hormones for yield enhancement. Scientists at Agronomy Department also work on development of agro-technologies for MAPs suitable for rain-fed and waterlogged areas.Department has taken initiative in designing and development of farm implements.
