Agronomy is the branch of agriculture that deals with field crop production and soil management. It is the science and technology of producing and using plants through agriculture for food, fuel, fibre, chemicals, recreation and land conservation.

Agronomy also includes research on plant genetics, plant physiology, meteorology and soil science. Agronomists work in the area of crop yield, plant infection, diseases, cultivation, pest and weed management. This specialist area of agriculture is very important in today’s context since the need for healthy, pest-resistant, and high yielding crops is the need of the hour, as is utilising the entire plant for various purposes for human betterment.

The two-year Master of Science in Agronomy programme offered by the Department of Agriculture is aimed at providing in-depth knowledge to the students to become on-field crop experts or researchers and academicians with understanding of the various facets of this subject and its applicability in agricultural settings. The subjects covered by this programme include Modern Crop Production Concepts, Physiology of Drought, Herbicides and Crop Production, Physiological Aspects of Crop Yield, Principles of Crop Nutrition, Advanced Irrigation Agronomy, Crop Ecology, Applied Conservation Agronomy, and Arid Zone Agronomy.

The practical aspect of the programme takes students to lab settings for research on soils, plants, plant genetics, natural manures and controlled environment farming. The research papers are also an important part of the course completion, as are poster and plant species researched, presentations and group projects. Students also present the utility of plant parts in various applications, and visit organic farms, agronomic research facilities and labs outside the university. Experts are also invited to hold talks and help students increase their knowledge.
