3. Objectives

Present day agriculture needs technological interventions to make rain fed, irrigated and dry land Agriculture more productive, sustainable and remunerative to farmers and to fulfill the objectives of several governmental schemes.

The next green revolution has to be achieved only through adoption of agricultural engineering principles and practices for the development and sustainability of agriculture. Some states in India and many states in advanced countries like USA and Germany have a strong base of “Agricultural Engineering” profession in Governmental Departments and in Universities to support the technological interventions for the Development and sustainability of Agriculture.

Hence, there is a need to develop trained manpower in agricultural engineering in the country to cater to the following needs of agriculture in general and the farmers in particular.


1. Mechanization of Agriculture to reduce cost of cultivation and to perform all field operations including harvesting and threshing in time to increase net income to farmers.

2. Natural resources Management Technologies to cope up with water scarcity, water excess and salinity problems with efficient water management, micro irrigation and drainage systems to sustain agriculture

3. Value addition to agricultural products by efficient storage, handling and processing technologies to make agriculture more remunerative to farmer.


1. To design efficient irrigation water management methods with surface and micro-irrigation methods to overcome water scarcity and inequitable water distribution situation to improve water use efficiency.

2. To reclaim waste lands and problematic lands to increase land productivity by adopting suitable drainage and water technologies

3. To design and manufacture suitable agricultural machinery and implements requited for different soils and crops in the state to reduce the labour requirement and the total cost of cultivation for the farmers and to perform all field operations in time according to the need.

4. To design and develop suitable post-harvest equipment and processed to give value addition to agricultural and horticultural produce to get more price

5. To design process equipment for milk and food products to meet the market requirements

6. To design soil and water conservation, irrigation and drainage structures to preserve the precious natural resources.To design the energy conserving technologies for applications in agriculture using solar, wind and other non-conventional energy sources
