Prof. (Dr.) Sunil D. Upadhyaya
Dean Faculty of Agriculture
Welcome to the Faculty of Agriculture at Medi-Caps University in Indore. It is a great honor for us to be a part of such a prestigious university that is renowned for its discipline, academic excellence, dedicated faculty, and motivated students.
As a primarily agrarian country, agriculture is the main source of livelihood for over 80% of the rural population in India. To sustain and diversify this vital sector, skilled and innovative agricultural graduates are needed. Agricultural education is key to the prosperity of the nation, and there is a substantial gap between the demand and supply of skilled manpower, with a very low Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) of 0.3 in agriculture. However, the return on investment in agricultural education is high, with no recession or slowdown.
To address this gap, Medi-Caps University has established a Faculty of Agriculture with the aim of providing students with subject competency, self-motivation, a positive attitude, agri-business skills, and knowledge to produce graduates ready for society. We have a clear vision for the future of agricultural education and are ready to meet the needs of an ever-changing world.
