About Birsa Agricultural University

Agricultural education was first started in Bihar in 1908 with the establishment of Bihar Agricultural College at Sabour in the district of Bhagalpur. Later on, it was realised that the agricultural situation and features of the plateau region of South Bihar is different from the rest of Bihar. Hence there was a need of a second college for this region. Ranchi Agriculture College was established in 1955, Ranchi Veterinary College in 1961 and College of Forestry in 1980. Considering the importance of agricultural education for the agricultural development of the state, the first Agricultural University in Bihar – Rajendra Agricultural University was started in1971 with its headquarters at Pusa.

Dr S. C. Dubey

State Agricultural universities (SAUs) are autonomous organizations with responsibilities to conduct, disseminate, execute and upgrade agricultural teaching, research, extension and training across the state. The SAUs have played vital role in restructuring and emboldening the agricultural education system in India and have been based on a pattern similar to that of the land-grant universities in the United States. These universities are branches of research under the ICAR and became the partners of the National Agricultural Research System (NARS). Birsa Agricultural University is one such SAUs set up with the primary objective to develop area specific technologies and create trained manpower in the field of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Forestry, Dairy, Fishery etc. for the undulating topography and resource-poor farmers of Chhotanagpur & Santhalpargana region. It was established on June 26, 1981 with formal inauguration by the then Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi. Bestowed with a sprawling campus spread over 3551 acres of land, it has eleven prestigious colleges offering quality education in various streams.
