Educational Visit to Agriculture fair and KNK Horticulture College
Department of Life Science has organized an Educational Visit to Agriculture Fair which was held at KNK Horticulture College Campus, Mandsaur. The local farmers brought their different type of cultivated products to display in the fair. In addition, several stalls were there where recent advancement in agriculture technologies had been displayed. Students visited each stall and enriched their knowledge on Agriculture Sciences and related technologies. Being a Microbiology and Biotechnology student, now they can think about how to apply their scientific knowledge in the field of Agriculture Sciences.
After visiting the Agriculture Fair, we took our students to visit the Plant Pathology Lab of KNK Horticulture Collage. Plant Pathology is an important subject for Microbiology and Biotechnology students. Professor R. P. Patel and Professor B. K. Patidar of Department of Plant Pathology delivered a very informative lecture on common Plant diseases and their symptoms and preventions. They also showed the archival samples of common plant diseases to the students. Prof. R. P. Patel also demonstrated how mushroom can be cultivated? At the end of this session, the students were interacted with the agricultural research scientists with their specific queries related to plant diseases and mushroom cultivation.
