Agriculture plays a crucial role in the Indian economy. Almost 60 percent of the Indian workforce is involved in agriculture, but that has not resulted in substantial growth of the sector. In fact, its contribution to the GDP has dwindled to less than 25 percent. It is time that students explore this highly important area.
Most students are well aware of the streams like engineering and medicine, and post-graduate degrees like the MBA. But they may not have given any thought to B. Sc. in Agriculture program.
