In 21st century in all walks of life there is a tremendous sea change in technology & thereby facilitating every work in life. Vis-a-vis this is also applicable to agriculture. In traditional farming one cannot increase yield of crops substantially. For increasing productivity of all crops it is highly essential to adopt modern technology viz mechanization where in instead of human being machineries are used for cultivation of crop, drip irrigation for application of water to crop, use of weedicides to remove weeds, polyhouse cultivation of flowers & vegetables, high density planting in fruit crops. Bio-technology, hydroponics are some other technologies used in agriculture. In this way in Agriculture advanced modern technologies are used to boost the yield of crops. This is necessary as land is shrinking due to urbanization, industrialization nauseating, to increase yield per unit area from available land by adopting advanced, modern technologies. For this purpose trained manpower in application & adaptation of modern technologies are required. Thus process of modernization is a continuous process. This trained manpower will be available only from Agricultural College.
Not only in rural areas there is lot of dropouts at various levels of school & higher education. On account of this it is highly essential to increase educational facilities in Agriculture & allied sciences in all districts so that students from rural areas will get opportunity in getting education in Agriculture and allied sciences. This trained manpower will be utilized for adopting modern technology for increasing yield of cereals, pulse, oilseeds, fruit crops in cultivation of off-season vegetables & flowers in polyhouse.
