Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry


  • The Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry came into existence in 1956 with the establishment of College of Agriculture
  • In early days of its inception, the department catered the need of under graduate teaching besides some preliminary soil and plant research. 
  • However, with the introduction of post graduate education in 1970-71, research activities extended cutting across the different sub disciplines with major emphasis on soil fertility and plant nutrition with subsequent strengthening of infrastructure facilities for undergraduate and post graduate teaching.
