    A degree programme in agriculture has lot of scope these days. Government have come forward to improve the agricultural production of the country. This means more scientific input will be needed in every corner of the country where in some agricultural activity is possible. There is still scarcity of experts in this field. Similarly more research is needed regarding various aspects of production and site selection. In our country agriculture production mainly depend on weather. Availability of rain in the correct season is not guaranteed. Hence planning for the availability of water in time will have to be done early. Seed and fertilizer selection have to be done scientifically. Like that at almost all stages the advise of a qualified person is a must in agriculture sector.
    However selection of the college is also important. There are Govt and private colleges. It is irrelevant which is selected. Make sure that the college selected is equipped with good facilities including staff and research laboratories.

    B.Sc Agriculture course are in great demand in State - government, Central- government and in Research - laboratories, Food - processing units etc.
    B.Sc Agriculture is a four year degree programme where an aspirant gets sufficient inputs in Selection of soil for a particular crop, selection of seeds, Biotechnology, agronomy, plant - genetics and animal - husbandry etc.

    A student of agriculture has lots of scope. However, before discussing that aspect, let me advise you to check whether the college and university under which you are studying is affiliated to UGC, or not.

    A student of agriculture has various scopes nowadays. He can become a crop scientist, a cash crop scientist, a plantation expert. He can join academics also. Pisciculture, animal husbandry, sericulture, etc. are also part of agricultural science. He can shift his attention to those directions also. A student of agriculture can join bank as Agricultural Officer and can also have private employment in agro-based industries and companies.

    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    Though there is tight position for jobs still some of the career lines are slightly better than others and in that context Agriculture degree is somewhat better.
    B Sc Agriculture is a 4 years degree program and encompasses a syllabus starting from crop production to agricultural equipment. It is a big field and with Govt thrust on agriculture it is going further more lucrative from job point of view.
    The students with XII science are eligible for pursuing this course and those who have science with agriculture can join this for taking advantage of their basic knowledge in agriculture.
