Rural Agricultural Work Experience (RAWE) 

In RAWE students are exposed to real life of rural settings. Its aim is to develop a  sense of awareness among the students about the problems of farmers and rural  people to inculcate professional attitude in facing real-life problems. Major  components are industrial attachment, field visits, village attachment and plant clinic.  In the industrial attachment, students get attached to an agro based industry and gain  work experience over there. In village attachment, students get attached to a village  where they work with farmers. They also help farmers in various operations. Field  visits are organized to progressive farms, Krishi Vigyan Kendras, Horticulture  Centers and IPM Laboratory, etc. In the plant clinic, students undergo rigorous  training. They diagnose the various problems of soils and plants related to production  and give solutions or suggestions to farmers. 

Practical Crop Production (PCP) 

It is an integral part of the course curriculum for B. Sc. (Hons) Ag. Degree program.  In this land is provided to a group of students. They have to cultivate it themselves.  They not only earn during PCP by selling their produce but also bear the risks  associated with crop production.
