Faculty OF Agriculture

Agriculture sector plays a vital role in economic growth and social development of the province of Balochistan, especially in the rural area.

The sector accounts for about 25% of GDP and about 50% of employment in Pakistan. The yield of crops and fruits are very low as compared with other developing countries, including India. Targets could be achieved by providing highly qualified and adequately skilled manpower in agricultural sciences and by under taking problem oriented research programs and transfer of technologies to the end users. Balochistan has various ecological zones, for agriculture. Faculty of Crop & Plant Sciences was established in March, 2006 to produce the adequately skilled manpower to address arid, tropical / subtropical, coastal, agriculture and deciduous horticulture.

Curriculum being followed by the faculty is totally inline with HEC for the award of BS Agriculture four years (8 Semester) degree with specialization in Agronomy, Phyto-Pathology, Entomology, Horticulture and Soil Sciences. As the faculty develops, specialist graduates will also be produced in Food Technology, Plant Breeding & Genetics and Plant/Crop Physiology
