There is no separate faculty for carrying out research jobs and all the faculty members carry out research work in addition to teaching and extension activities. The faculty research programs are generally suggested by the individual teachers, are finalized in consultation with the Heads of the Departments and subsequently approved by the Director of Research keeping in view the direction of Research Council of the University. The research programs are generally need based and problem oriented and are designed to help the farmers/orchardists. For the identification of problems relevant to the farming situations and prioritizing the research programs, the feedback comes from interactions with farmers, Krishi Vigyan Kendra and the Research Council of the university.
The faculty members of the departments also formulate adhoc research projects on some burning problems for funding from various funding agencies. Such projects are finalized in consultation with the Heads of the Departments and the Director of Research and are submitted to the funding agency for financial support/sanction through the Director of Research.
The research programs are carried out in the various departments of the campus as per their mandate/ objectives.
