INTRODUCTION

Mir Chakar Khan Rind University is located in Sibi city, Balochistan Province. This University initiated its primary functioning in the building of Vocational Training Center (Boys) at Sibi. At present university offering various bachelor’s degree programs, among them one program is B.Sc Agriculture Hon’s, whereas is various disciplines of Agriculture (Crop Production and Crop Protection) will be taught to impart education to the students coming from all over Pakistan. The graduates of this program after receiving degrees shall serve in various fields related to agriculture in public and private sectors throughout the world.

HOD's MESSAGE

The discovery of agriculture was the first biggest step towards a civilized life.

“Arthur Keith”

Agriculture is considered the backbone of Pakistan’s economy. It is one of the ancient and productive sectors of human activity. Providing food, feed, shelter and clothing has been the goal of agriculture for decades. Department of Agriculture at MCKRU was established in October 2020 with a strong commitment to impart high standard quality education with great quality of research related to the burning problems of agriculture sector to the youth of the country in general and the province of Balochistan, in particular, to face the future challenges of new millennium in Crop Production and Crop Protection sciences in order to produce high order professionals with academic excellence.

The department offers B.Sc. (Hons.) Agri. Sciences (four years degree). The students who get admission in the department of Agriculture have to study general agriculture subjects during their First and Second year (1st to 4th semester). From the third year (5th-8th semester), students have to choose one major these six areas of agriculture such as Agronomy, Plant Breeding and Genetics, Soil Science, Horticulture, Plant Pathology and Entomology to study and conduct their research. In the 8th semester, students are being sent to the well-known agricultural research institutes across the country to conduct their research and to prepare the report. Other than this, Department of Agriculture owns a large area for conducting field experiments and a well-established lab where students can perform their experiments in fully research-based environment.

With the hard work of the faculty of Agriculture, I feel proud by saying that at this stage, our undergraduate students are performing multiple experiments in the lab as well as field and are conducting research with the supervision of their qualified mentors. At this stage our students can scout for various pests and diseases in the field.

There are numerous job opportunities for agriculture graduates at government and private sectors such as Federal Departments of Agriculture Research, Provincial Department of Agriculture (Research and Extension Wing), Seed corporation of Pakistan, Soil testing and tissue culture and genetic engineering laboratories, Cut flower industries, Sugar mills, Private pesticide, fertilizer and seed companies, Universities, Collages and commercial banks of Pakistan.  

I would like to welcome the students who wish to decorate their future with their dreams and with an enthusiasm to bring revolution in the field of agriculture. Students come and get admission in the department of Agriculture to bring a change in the standards of farming community of Balochistan.

DEPARTMENT OF ENTOMOLOGY

 The mission of the department is to produce high class graduates who could understand the science of insects and manage them in accordance to the welfare of human beings. The department will conduct fundamental and applied research on insects, educate students to implement integrated and effective systems for insect management and enhance modern education and public awareness of human-insect interaction. Major objective is to provide modern scientific knowledge of entomology and related sciences to students and update farming community with modern information / knowledge.

 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES.

  1. Entomology, the study of insects has developed into a very large division of the animal sciences owing to their huge proportion in the animal kingdom and their importance in the applied fields. Substantial changes were made throughout the curriculum which has been updated/expanded.
  2. The main objective was to provide broad and balanced courses of Entomology. The intimacy between insect and environment was emphasized to the entomological research in many directions which later proved of immense value in the indigenous control measures to provide more food for the ever-growing population of Pakistan.

Aim of the Department of Plant Pathology is to carry out research on different aspects for identification and integrated management of plant diseases. Department is providing modern scientific knowledge to students enrolled in graduate program, provide guidelines to farming community for proper treatment of diseased plant and workout know how about biological Control and other non-chemical control measures of plant diseases. 

AIMS AND OBJECTIVE

 Plant Pathology are the study on the living entities that cause diseases in plants; the non-living entities and the environmental conditions that cause disorders in plants; The mechanisms by which the disease-causing agents produce diseases. The interactions between the disease-causing agents and host plant in relation to overall environment; and the method of preventing or management the diseases and reducing the losses/damages caused by diseases.

Organisms that cause infectious disease include, Fungi, Oomycetes, Bacteria, Viruses, Viroid’s, virus-like organisms, Phytoplasmas, Protozoa, Nematodes and Parasitic plants.

            It involves the study of pathogen identification, disease etiology, disease cycles, economic impact, plant disease epidemiology, Plant disease resistance, how plant diseases affect humans and animals, path systems genetics, and management of plant diseases. Plant pathology comprises with the fundamental knowledge and technologies of Mycology, Bacteriology, Virology, Nematology, Genetics, Molecular Plant Pathology
