Course programme

B.V.Sc. Pharmacology and Toxicology

Agricultural education was first started in Bihar in 1945 with the

establishment of Bihar Agricultural College at Sabour in the

district of Bhagalpur. Later on, it was realised that the

agricultural situation and features of the plateau region of South

Bihar is different from the rest of Bihar. Hence there was a need

of a second college for this region. Ranchi Agricultural College

was established in 1955, Ranchi Veterinary College in 1962 and

College of Forestry in 1980. Considering the importance of

agricultural education for the agricultural development of the

state, the first Agricultural University in Bihar - Rajendra

Agricultural University was started in1971 with its headquarters

at Pusa. In view of the specific agriculture features of

Chotanagpur and Santhal Parganas, the establishment of a

second Agricultural University, for this region of the Bihar State,

was conceived.

Birsa Agricultural University was established on 26th June, 1981

after its formal inauguration by the then Prime Minister of India,

Late Smt. Indira Gandhi. Its primary objective is to develop area

specific technologies and manpower in the field of agriculture,

animal husbandry and forestry for the agricultural development

of the plateau region of Bihar and economic upliftment of tribal

and other backward class population of the region. The

programmes and activities of education, research and extension

are carried out through three faculties (Agriculture, Veterinary

Sciences & Animal Husbandry and Forestry) with thirty five

departments, College of Biotechnology, six Directorates, three

Zonal Research Stations and farms, one University farm, twelve

Krishi Vigyan Kendras, Computer Centre, Central Library and

other infrastructure and service units. Being a completely

residential university, hostels for boys and girls, and residential

facilities for Teachers/Scientists and supporting staff have been

provided in the campus.
