Dean's Message

I Prof. (Dr.) Sharad Pandey welcome you on behalf of the School of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, to Jigyasa University (Formerly Himgiri Zee University) and acknowledge your interest in our University. India is a agrarian economy and majority of the country’s population depends on agriculture for their livelihood. The agriculture sector contributes roughly 14% of the country’s total GDP. In India, the agriculture sector has the largest number (54.6%) of employees in the country.  The Branch of Agriculture is a never ending branch consisting of comprehensive knowledge of basic and applied sciences with the aim of contributing to human survival and life. In other words, modern agriculture is not only an industry but also a practical study that supports our lives. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School of Agriculture. The School is your doorway to educational, research and outreach programs in agriculture. We sincerely hope every student studying here will understand the role and importance of agriculture, and grow into human resources with a broad perspective, professional insight and technique, and a rich human nature that can support our future. At our School, we provide our students with a practical based education that prepares them for careers in a growing job market. There is an increasing demand for graduates with degrees in agriculture and related fields and we are here to meet that demand. We sincerely believe in holistic education and prepare our students in that direction. Industrial and visits to scientific institutions for better understanding of the subject are a regular feature. My dear young students, you the next generation who can really do effective research in the field of agricultural sciences and make our country self sufficient in feeding the burgeoning population. It is therefore most important for you and your family to make good use of the opportunities and resources provided in time. I wish you all the best for your bright future.
