College of Agriculture - CoA

The College of Agriculture, Agriculture, Shivaji Nagar Pune traces back its origin in the year 1907, in the city of Pune, Maharashtra. The institute has an aim to achieve vigorous research in the field of Agriculture, that would lead to the development of the sector on the immensely fertile land of the state of Maharashtra. The mission statement of the institute is 'to generate competent agri - professionals with immense commitment to the spirit of professionalism and responsible citizenship, in a competitive global environment.' The College of Agriculture is a government aided institute, and is affiliated to Maharashtra Agricultural University. As a result of the establishment of the Department of Agriculture at the national level and at the provinces, the realization that research and education are the very foundations for the development of agriculture dawned on the minds of the administrators, educationists, social reformers and thinkers. Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, the noted thinker, social reformer and agriculturist of Pune appealed to the British Government to set institutions for agricultural education and research in India. This led to the opening of a branch for teaching agriculture in the College of Science at Pune in 1879 that was subsequently developed into a separate College of Agriculture in 1907. Initially three year diploma of the Bombay University was offered. In 1899 a degree course leading to Licentiate in Agriculture (L.Ag.) was started. The Bombay University in the year 1909 further extended the scope of these studies, raised the standards and instituted the degree of Bachelor of Agriculture (B.Ag.). Its nomenclature was changed to Bachelor of Science in Agriculture [B.Sc.(Agri.)] and the first batch of graduates with this degree passed out in 1937.
