Agricultural Universities in India: List of ICAR-Approved Universities

'India is an agriculture-based economy' is as common a phrase as any in India. This is a fact carelessly thrown around and often misunderstood but that does not make it any less true. Agriculture employs more than half of India's workforce. The share of people employed in agriculture and related activities is over 80% when we consider only the rural population of India. Even though such a large share of the population of India is involved in Agriculture, most of the common practices and techniques used in Agriculture are pretty rudimentary. This presents an immense opportunity and scope for growth in the Agricultural Education sector and a similar scope for talented young graduates to make a career in the field of Agriculture.

Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) is the governing body responsible for the development of agricultural higher education in India. It oversees the courses, curriculum and provides recognition to colleges offering Agriculture courses in India.

Given below is the list of agricultural universities operating at the central and state level in India.
