Mission & Vision

The Department of Agricultural Botany at the Sardarkrushinagar Dantewada, Agricultural University is one of the oldest department of our university. Later on the department was renamed as Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding. Now, Department of Molecular Biology & Biotechnology also running as a separate department along with Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding. Department is well equipped with excellent lab facilities for carrying Molecular Biology, Tissue Culture, Cytological, and Physiological work.

Mandate
  • Conduct higher education in the field of Genetics & Plant Breeding, Plant Physiology and Biotechnology for Bachelor, Master and Doctorate degrees.

Introduction

Agricultural engineering department is engaged in UG and PG teaching. The department was instrumental to play key role in establishing the College of Renewable Energy & Environmental Engineering in SDAU.

Introduction

The Department of Agricultural Chemistry and Soil Science offered six courses in the faculty of (B.Sc.) Agriculture, one courses in the faculty of Horticulture, one course in B.Sc. Home science, two courses in Basic Science and Humanities at under graduate levels and twenty two courses at post graduate levels. The teachers are also associated with the teaching in Agri Business Management (ABM) in which one course was offered. Thirteen M.Sc. and one Ph.D. students are on roll. Soil and water sample analysis is also carried out by department.

Objective :

  • To assess the quality of irrigation waters and to develop appropriate location specific agro-technology for using poor quality ground water.

Achievement :

  • Total 764 irrigation water samples were collected from the wells and tube wells of  North and North West Agroclimatic Zones of Gujarat and they were analyzed for Electrical Conductivity (total soluble salts), pH, CO3=, HCO3- ,   Cl- SO4=, Ca++, Mg++, Na+ and K+ content. SAR and RSC values were also calculated. From the results of these samples it is revealed that the salinity is the major problem but the problem of sodicity is meager
