Career Path student can choose after the course

As plant scientists, agronomists can have many career paths, but their careers are generally focused on increasing the quality and amount of food produced for the nation's food supply.

Agronomy connects technology with agriculture. It provides practical solutions to enhance crop production practices. If you have an interest in this field, it could be a rewarding and fulfilling career path. Depending on their specialisation and field of study, an agronomist has an option to work in different environments, including:


Agronomists: They can conduct the research and the field investigations, take samples and observations, perform tests, and identify and solve the problems related to the plant or soil nutrition, damage from pests or wildlife, weather or climate change, or use special products, Such as pesticides, fertilizers, etc.


Agricultural Scientists: Agricultural scientists work in many specialties. Veterinarians focus on how domestic agricultural animals are used for food. They study reproduction, development, genetics, and diseases. Food scientists and technologists analyze nutrition and processing to make manufactured foods more attractive and nutritious.


Crop Production Specialist: The Crop Production Specialist will assist the Project Management Unit (PMU) in the planning, implementation, and monitoring of production, productivity and income of domestic crops related to the targeted crops.


Crop Scientist: Crop scientists, also known as soil and plant scientists, work to improve the quality of the food crops that we consume. This may include developing new methods to keep pests and weeds at bay. Crop scientists work in a variety of settings, including laboratories, offices, and crops that are grown.


Lab Technician: Lab assistants are responsible for helping technologists and scientists during lab tests and research. These highly-analytical professionals have in-depth knowledge of basic laboratory techniques and equipment. His duties include processing samples, classified results and recording findings.


Assistant Professor: The responsibilities of an assistant professor include teaching the required number of classes, providing guidance and supervision to graduate students, attending departmental meetings, and providing academic support to professors and other faculty members.


Research Fellow: The Research Fellow develops a strategy and vision from start to finish of a project; Creates teams and collaborations that understand the direction of the project. Communicates direction through words or actions to motivate team members to reach goals.


Farm Associate: Coordination with farmers - Collecting soil samples, maintaining farm profile, etc. Kisan Interaction - Discussion on creating and driving the WhatsApp group.


Farm Manager:- the farm manager is responsible for the management and general maintenance of the farm. On a crop farm, a farm manager will supervise the fertilization, planting, spraying, cultivation and harvesting processes of crops
