Department of Agronomy

Mission and Objectives

  1. Institutional Mission:

Provision of the best possible quality higher education with prime focus on the development of well-trained and skilled human resource in various disciplines through high class teaching and research.

  1. Program Mission:

The mission of the Department of Agronomy is to enhance the intellectual, cultural, social and professional development of its students and researchers, who in turn will extend the present limit of agricultural know how, insight, and understanding about existing research and deliver the fruits of research to the people. To establish and promote high quality teaching, problem oriented research and technology transfer in the field of Agronomy in order to address the fundamental questions of Crop Production. The department teaching program is divided into three parts; undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate. The undergraduate program serves all the students of the university, whereas, the graduate and postgraduate programs are offered to those specializing in Agronomy.
Within the framework of the Department and subject to annual review, the following units performed specialized teaching functions.
1. Crop Production
2. Crop Physiology
3. Seed Technology
4. Arid Zone Agronomy

  1. Crop Production: Careers building through high quality teaching, research and professional activities in the areas of Cereal Crops, Sugar Crops,     Fiber Crops, Legume/Pulse Crops, Oilseed Crops, Forage Crops, and Miscellaneous Crops (tobacco, tea, sesbania etc.)

(ii)        Crop Physiology: Careers building through high quality teaching, research and professional activities in the areas of, Plant Physiology, Crop physiology, Physiology of crops under stress, Seed physiology, Physiology of growth and development, Physiology of crop yield, Advanced crop nutrition, Advanced crop physiology, and Plant metabolism and bio-energetics.
(iii)       Seed Technology
Seed Technology covers all the technical and support activities involving the role and concept of seed technology, structure of seed, seed germination, seed dormancy, seed production of self and cross-pollinated crops, production of single, double and three-way cross seed, and field inspections. Information on laboratory standards for seed, seed certification procedures, Pakistan's seed certification system, seed legislation, seed health testing, seed tests for purity, germination, moisture and vigour, seed processing, drying, cleaning and grading, seed treatment and seed storage are provided.
(iv)  Arid Zone Agronomy
            Deals with the courses like, cultural practices and pre-requisite of cultivars for profitable un-irrigated/dry/rainfed farming,
Standard 1.1: The program must have documented measurable objectives that support college and institution mission statements.

  1. Program Objectives:
  1. Impart academic and research training at undergraduate level in the field of Agronomy.
  2. Plan and undertake thematic research including both on basic and applied research on field crops including (major and minor crops) cereals, oilseed, medicinal herbs, cash and pulses crops.
  3. Establish strong linkages with provincial, national and international research and educational organizations to undertake collaborative assignments.
  1. Strategic Plan
  1. Capacity of the under graduates through implementation of an up-dated curriculum consisting of core, major and elective subjects based on modern trends in Agronomy for the improvement of Crop Productivity.
  2. Enhanced capacity of the under graduates through conceptual teaching and laboratory work, home assignments, group discussions, projects, presentations, etc
  3. Improve professional skills of the under graduates through mandatory laboratory and field based internships and co-curricular activities such as departmental quizzes, exhibitions and competitions.
