Agriculture industry plays an important role in India as it provides employment to the major section of the Indian population. Earlier, farmers were using primitive methods in cultivation, irrigation and farming, but these methods were not giving fruitful results. The government of India then decided to use the experts' knowledge in order to improve the productivity of this industry. Government took an important and a positive step by introducing Agriculture and Allied Science Engineering and with in no time, the course hit the top list and it became one of the favourite courses of the students.

National Academy of Agricultural Research Management, Hyderabad
The National Academy of Agricultural Research Management (NAARM) was established by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) at Hyderabad, in 1976, to address issues related to agricultural research and education management. In the initial years, the academy primarily imparted foundation training to the new entrants of the agricultural research service of ICAR. Subsequently, its role expanded to include research, capacity building of senior professionals of national and international NARS in agricultural research and education management, and policy and consultancy support to NARS. The Academy also renders services for building IP portfolios like patents and geographical indications to various stakeholders including farmers and scientists. Keeping in view the increasing national and global need to integrate agriculture with agribusiness for raising rural incomes, and the increased emphasis on the creation, dissemination, application and exchange of knowledge in this vital area, the academy has recently initiated post graduate education programmes and set up an Agribusiness Knowledge Centre.
