Further, we emphasize on transfer of skill and technology to the farmers who are the backbone of food production, so as to equip them with the latest development in farming techniques. Therefore, as a part of the agricultural extension activities workshops, training programs, etc, are organized to extend service and knowledge to the farmers. Overall, we try to create an environment that is conducive to teaching, research and extension activities.

I am fortunate to be a part of this prestigious COA family which has consistently guided me in my efforts to elevate the success of the College. The diligent faculty, staff of the College and students are the pillars of our success story. I hope to carry forward the rich tradition of the College by being an administrator who facilitates the progress and development of the College.
