About Discipline

Agronomy is a science of crop production and management, which deals from land preparation, seed, variety, sowing, intercropping, water, weed and nutrient management and harvest. In Mysuru district, paddy, tobacco, ragi pulses (pigeon pea, black gram, cowpea and horse gram), cotton, sugarcane are major crops. To improve the productivity of these crops, KVK has made consistant efforts through mandated activities. Agronomy activities include training to farmers, farmwomen, rural youth and extension personel, apart from conducting frontline demonstrations and on farm trials.
