In agriculture, the future looks extremely bright

Mystery of the Hidden Treasure.

In agriculture, the future looks extremely bright for students pursuing studies in agricultural sciences. Agriculture is a vast and diverse sector that offers not just a few but thousands of employment opportunities, according to Dr. Karnataka, Vice-Chancellor of Maharana Pratap Agriculture and Technology University. He shared these insights during a conversation with journalists in Udaipur on Saturday.

He emphasized that students currently studying agricultural subjects in secondary and higher secondary schools should not worry about their future careers because agriculture is a vital field filled with numerous opportunities. Branches of agriculture such as community science, fisheries, dairy, food technology, and agricultural engineering offer successful entrepreneurial prospects and ample opportunities in government, private sectors, educational institutions, and research organizations. Dr. Karnataka highlighted that agriculture is a resilient sector that remained largely unaffected even during the COVID-19 pandemic when other industries faced significant challenges. He also stressed the importance of innovative thinking in agriculture, especially in adapting to changing weather patterns.

Dr. Karnataka stated that it is essential to inspire school children to envision a future in agriculture and contribute to the growth of themselves and their country. To this end, a one-day "Agriculture Education Fair" is being organized on September 16th. This fair will take place at the auditorium of Rajasthan Agricultural University, Udaipur, and aims to motivate students studying agriculture in the Udaipur district. Over three hundred students, principals, and staff from approximately 20 schools in Udaipur district have been invited to the fair to help them understand the significance of agriculture and make informed career choices.

Dr. Karnataka also mentioned the National Agricultural Higher Education Project (NAHEP). This World Bank-funded initiative began in 2018 at Maharana Pratap Agriculture and Technology University, which focuses on improving the quality of agricultural education and attracting students to higher education in agriculture.

The inaugural session of the one-day Agriculture Education Fair will feature Dr. J.P. Sharma, former Vice-Chancellor of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Jammu, as the chief guest, and Dr. Ajit Kumar Karnatak, Vice-Chancellor of Maharana Pratap Agriculture and Technology University, as the presiding officer. The fair will consist of four sessions where renowned agricultural experts, including Professor Dr. Rita Raghuvanshi, former professor of agricultural engineering at Jawaharlal Nehru Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, and Dr. B.K. Das, retired professor and head of the Food Safety and Quality Division at Anand Agricultural University, Gujarat, will address students' questions and provide insights into the vast potential of careers in agriculture. The fair will also showcase exhibitions highlighting employment prospects in the agriculture sector.

Dr. Latika Vyas, the university's Information and Public Relations Officer, expressed her gratitude and appreciation for the event.
