M.Sc. (Agri.):Soil Science & Agril. Chemistry with specialization in Land Resource Management
Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry was established in the year 1969 with the formation of Punjabrao Krishi Vidyapeeth on 20th October, 1969, then renamed as Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola on 17th April, 1992. The department was established to cater the needs of teaching, research and extension in the field of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry. The educational programmes leading to M.Sc. (Agri.) and Ph. D. in Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry and Land Resource Management along with various research programmes and allied extension activities are conducted successfully.
The department has total intake capacity of 20 M.Sc. and two Ph.D. students in Soil Science and Agril. Chemistry and six M.Sc. and two Ph.D. students in Soil Science and Agril. Chemistry with specialization in Land Resource Management every year. The Center for Post Graduate Education and Research in Land Resource Management was established in the department in the year 1987 in collaboration with National Bureau of Soil Survey and Land Use Planning (ICAR), Nagpur. The main objective of the Center of Land Resource Management is to identify, generate and correlate the data required for land resource management for optimum utilization of limited land resources.
