Background: Top 10 Constituent Government Agriculture Colleges In Chhattisgarh

Looking back at 1990s for an idea about how the craze of getting admission in agriculture college have became popular and increased with each passing year. The first recognised government agriculture university in early 1990s was Indira Gandhi Agriculture University or Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, established in the year 1987 when Chhattisgarh was an integral part of Madhya Pradesh. Initially, this university was started as an agriculture research station for east region of Madhya Pradesh at Labhandi, Raipur and no teaching courses were offered. The institute was formerly known as Rice Research Station. Jawaharlal Nehru Agriculture University, the parent university for all agriculture colleges in Madhya Pradesh was still the major place of education and research work on that time.

So, the actual journey of research, extension and teaching work was started with the establishment of Indira Gandhi Agriculture University. During this period the literacy rate of the different states was relatively low. Professional courses such as M. B. B. S. and Engineering were the first choice among the students. Agriculture was not so popular and the students of Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya come from different region and states like Western Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand Odisha etc.

Sc., agriculture program started increasing year by year with the establishment of various government and non-government agriculture/horticulture colleges across the state.
