The Stake holders of Indian Agriculture namely Agricultural Universities, Scientists, Departments, Input industry and most importantly Farmers contribute to the sustenance of Agriculture. In the present circumstances, wide range of research materials and products which are essential for modern farming are not reaching the farming community on time. This gap is further widened by our fresh Agri graduates as they are not trained to face the current practical difficulties in the field. Here comes the role of GPS Institute of Agricultural Management where we focus on confidence and skill building in young graduates and pre- graduates, making them capable of analyzing and advising the farming community and also taking up various agriculture related projects with an entrepreneurial mind set.
