The School of Agriculture was set up in 1975 with the initial responsibility of training graduates to teach agriculture in the educational system of the country at the pre-university level. The School has, since its inception, undisputedly identified itself with this primary role. In addition to this role, the School is playing several roles and has made modest achievements in all sectors. The School functions in its teaching, research and extension activities through five departments and three specialized units. The Departments are Agricultural Economics and Extension, Agricultural Engineering, Animal Science, Crop Science and Soil Science. The Specialized Supporting Units are the Teaching and Research Farm, Technology Village and Meat Processing Unit..
