It gives me immense pleasure that one of the premier College in Agriculture has been established by Guru Kashi University Talwandi Sabo, in the rural hub of Malwa belt of Punjab. The College will enlighten the education deprived regions of three states, namely Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan by spreading quality agricultural education. The College will surely work for the well being of rural populace of the region particularly farming community. The region centric research will solve local issues and provide solutions at door steps of the farmer which will boost agrarian economy. The qualified and dedicated faculty of the college, good infrastructural facilities and committed management will create right ambiance for producing world class graduates and excellent human resource for the country. I wishfully think that the college will measure to the expectations of all stake holders.

Agriculture has been the mainstay of Indian economy since ages. The science and art of agriculture has many references in the Vedic Literature and the ancient history of the mankind. The agriculture sector in India provides employment to 58% of the population of the country and contributes about 17-18 % to the Gross Domestic Product. Trained human resource has been the key factor behind the Green Revolution that has led India to become self reliant in food and becoming a fast developing economy. Knowledge based, input-use efficient, eco-friendly and high tech precision agriculture has been the next stage for which efforts have been recognized by Guru Kashi University in planning, designing and executing the agricultural educational programmes. Considering the importance of Agricultural Education, Vice-Chancellor Dr. D. S. Hira, recommended the establishment of college of agriculture at GKU. As a result of this recommendation, college of agriculture was established in 2011 at GKU. The study programmes are as suggested by Indian Council of Agriculture Research, New Delhi.
