From Vice Chancellor's Desk

Wishing you all a happy and prosperous New Year 2020 !

I am happy that our University website is changing its face and we have launched our new website during Magova-2019, held on 11th January 2020. This year, we have combined two events together i.e. Magova-2019 and Rabi Field Day. We are happy that three Cabinet Ministers of Government of Maharashtra, including our Agricultural Minister and Pro-Chancellor, have visited and participated in the event. We are happy that in the history of any Agricultural University of India, Post Graduate students of the University have gone abroad (Asian Institute of Technology Bangkok, Thailand), for training in use of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics , Drones and IOTs in agriculture. Another batch of students will visit Malaysia shortly. This has been possible with help of CAST project for Climate Smart Agriculture funded by NAHEP programme of ICAR, New Delhi.

We have lot of expectations from new Government that is recently formed in Maharashtra. We are happy that Maharashtra state has recently received “Krishi Karman Award“ for the highest production of food grains during 2016-17, with Trophy and cash prize of Rs.5 Crore from the hands of our Hon’ble Prime Minister. We all should feel proud that role of Agricultural Universities in Maharashtra is definitely there in this achievement, though it is not mentioned anywhere. One of our farmers near Pune has also received award for producing highest paddy yield of 127 Qtls. per hectare, with our variety ‘Phule Samruddhi’. These facts are enough for us to feel proud that we are contributing to agriculture of Maharashtra in general and farmers of the State of particular.

The journey continues, there are lots of things to do in future. We should raise up to the expectations of our farmers. I appeal all our Scientists, Staff and students to join hands with the University and achieve our goals. I hope and wish 2020, we will have many new initiatives, activities and research programmes for farmers’ welfare. Let, 2020 be a good year for farmers also with good rains, good crops and better prices for their produce.

Let us all work together to bring smile on the face of ‘Annadata’ of this Country.
