Students of agriculture are availing a good amount of packages from the recruiters. I would like to name a few companies that visit LPU- Nestle, VLCC Health Care, HDFC, Rallis India, and many other firms. In the situation of Covid-19, LPU has relaxed their eligibility norms. Because of which lpunest is not compulsory for all the programmes. As for this programme LPUNEST works for scholarship purpose only. Here i am sharing the eligibility criteria of B.sc Hons Agriculture programme i.e. Pass with 60% aggregate marks in 10+2 or Intermediate (with English, Physics, Chemistry, Maths or Biology or Forestry) OR 10+2 or Intermediate (Agriculture) OR 2 yrs. Diploma in Agriculture after 10th or equivalent. So it totally depends on your percentage and your subjects studied. Admissions are going on, to grab the opportunity apply without any delay. Hope this information helps.

The most significant thing which should be emphasized is that LPU is the first private university which has been approved by ICAR.I along with my cousins had visited the fields, labs. In order to infuse understanding on emerging problems and technologies involved in agriculture field visits are conducted to neighbouring farms, orchards and nurseries. Not only subject related education is imparted but also the professional enhancement is added by the university through the different courses like soft skills and communication skills. Major Highlights of the programme that I would be highlighting over here are as follows: a) The course would impart knowledge and understanding of fundamental concepts and techniques of maintaining and enhancing soil fertility, crop production, crop management, crop improvement, biodiversity and sustainability of agriculture worldwide. b) The course would develop the ability to know farming practices and their scope to improve in the rural areas and the environments. c) It would help in applying the knowledge of basic science through Agricultural microbiology, Plant biochemistry and Biotechnology. d) It will focus on application of knowledge of Agri-business management and finance to develop profitable agricultural system. e) 19.25 LPA PLACEMENT OFFERED IN PANDEMIC BY DE SHAW LPU students have got top packages from leading Agriculture companies.

LPU is well known for its B.Sc(Hons) Agriculture course. LPU is the first private University to get ICAR accreditation. The faculty is well qualified, and most of them are Ph. Ds and provide full support to the students. The best thing is the University does not compromise with the academics as all the lectures are held. If a faculty wants a leave, either the makeup lectures are planned, or adjustments are provided for that particular slot. In this stream, as most of the work is fieldwork, every student is allocated a separate piece of land to perform their tasks under the supervision of the staff. If I talk about placements, University provides separate placement-oriented classes, and students also studied subjects like analytical skills, soft skills, etcetera as part of the curriculum to prepare the students. I want to name a few companies that visit LPU- Nestle, VLCC Health Care, HDFC, Rallis India, and many other firms.

LPU is well known for its B.Sc(Hons) Agriculture course. LPU is the first private University to get ICAR accreditation. The faculty is well qualified, and most of them are Ph. Ds and provide full support to the students. The best thing is the University does not compromise with the academics as all the lectures are held. If a faculty wants a leave, either the makeup lectures are planned, or adjustments are provided for that particular slot. In this stream, as most of the work is fieldwork, every student is allocated a separate piece of land to perform their tasks under the supervision of the staff. If I talk about placements, University provides separate placement-oriented classes, and students also studied subjects like analytical skills, soft skills, etcetera as part of the curriculum to prepare the students. I want to name a few companies that visit LPU- Nestle, VLCC Health Care, HDFC, Rallis India, and many other firms.

One thing to remember before enrolling in such a course is that the university we choose must provide us with in-depth and practical understanding of the key courses, must adapt to new technologies quickly, and the university's environment must be healthy and clean, all of which LPU excels at. LPU is the first private university in India to receive ICAR accreditation. LPU School of Agriculture received one of the top grades among the eight universities reviewed at the ICAR's 22nd Board Meeting. LPU places a strong emphasis on excellent education, and all of its professors are highly competent and approachable. Students gain a real-time grasp of conventional agriculture processes and successful knowledge distribution to farmers through the Rural Agriculture Work Experience (RAWE) programme. Field trips to nearby farms, orchards, and nurseries are done to provide a fundamental grasp of emerging problems and technology in agriculture. In addition to the main curriculum, the course includes topics such as communication and soft skills to help students improve their personality and employability. Now, these are just a few of LPU's benefits, but there is a lot more to enjoy about LPU, such as its infrastructure, study atmosphere, placements, cultural programmes, and so on. I can confidently state that LPU is worth attending.

My Brother is pursuing B.Sc (Hons)agriculture from Lovey Professional university and he is satisfied with academics,curriculum,placements,expoure etc.If you are looking for quality education and good placements along with learned faculty work hard on you to get you placed in the best of the companies, then LPU is the place for you to go for. LPU’s school of Agriculture has ICAR approval. Students who have passed out from LPU have got jobs in various departments and states. LPU has made a good name for itself in a short span of time by working hard for its students in terms of education, faculty, placements, infrastructure, etc. It works for the overall development of its students. Its main aim is to provide students with ample exposure both in the form of theoretical and practical knowledge for which there is much emphasis on workshops, live projects etc along with class room teaching. The university has made quality education possible for all by providing good scholarships under different categories. LPU focuses on quality education a lot and all the professors of LPU are highly qualified and friendly, LPU also focuses a lot on practical knowledge and agriculture students of LPU has to go through various such practical tasks and projects which makes it very easy to understand the concepts and develop a deep knowledge of the subjects. The best thing is the University does not compromise with the academics as all the lectures are held and if a faculty wants a leave either the makeup lectures are planned or adjustments are provided for that particular slot. Through the Rural Agriculture Work Experience (RAWE) program the students develop a real-time understanding of conventional agriculture methods and effective dissemination of knowledge to the farmers. LPU trains you for placements by conducting placement classes. It will train your for Group discussions and personal interview and will focus on improving you communication skills and reducing your state fear which most of the colleges do not teach you. University provides additional placement oriented classes and students also studied subjects like analytical skills, soft skills, etcetera as part of the curriculum to prepare the students for all types of competitive exams. I would like to name a few companies that visit LPU- Nestle, VLCC Health Care, HDFC, Rallis India, and many other firms. In order to provide a basic understanding of emerging problems and technologies involved in agriculture, field visits are conducted to neighboring farms, orchards, and nurseries Now, these were just some of the few advantages of LPU but there is much more good to say about LPU like it’s infrastructure, study environment, placements, cultural programs and what not, I can definitely say that LPU would be worth joining.

LPU is the first private University in India which is ICAR accredited by ICAR. There are some private colleges in Maharashtra also which you can admission through payment as far i listened they are not up to mark. When coming to facultys in LPU most of the faculty will be PhD candidates they are good at teaching and very helpful for the students. Unlike govt universitys faculty's cannot skip the lectures in Lpu . At the end of the semester faculty need to cover the skipped lectures too by conducting extra makeup classes. Research work is not upto mark in Lpu as lpu started Agriculture recently as BSC Agriculture concerned it won't effect much. Placements - LPU is trying to get placements . companies visited are Tata Rallis, NCDEX, dhanuka ,smur Agro,pragya, Reliance etc , UPL But don't come to LPU expecting placements not everyone will get placed this is the same scenario in govt universitys also. But lpu trains you for placements by conducting placement classes. It will train your for Group discussions and personal interview and will focus on improving you communication skills and reducing your state fear which most govt also doesn't not teach like Lpu. Lpu also conducts classes for the students who want to prepare for masters from 3rd year onwards. In Lpu you can do internships ,job from final year onwards unlike other govt universitys .for govt universitys you are not allowed from 4th year. You can do job/ internship from 4th year itself. Diversity will be more in Lpu you can make friends from almost all states and few countries too. When diversity is concerned no university in India can beat LPU. In future we are expecting lpu will get more placements due to more diversity which the company recruiters need. Lab and filed work is also good. There are student organization in Agriculture also AGRINIANS and agros you can also join in it for developing your skills. LPU is just like the more reap the more you get. Good luck!
