DEPARTMENT OF PLANT BREEDING AND GENETICS

The inception of the present department of Plant Breeding and Genetics dates back to 1954. Post graduateprogramme started in 1961. The department was initially designated as the Department of Agricultural Botany, engaged in teaching and research in the field of Genetics, Cytogenetics, Plant Breeding and Plant Physiology. Subsequently, in the year 1972, a new department of Plant Physiology was carved out of this department and the department was redesignated as Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics. Ph.D. programme started in 1982. The department is offering courses of 14 credit hours & 20 credit hours of Experiential Learning Programme in Agriculture under graduate courses, 3 credit hours in Forestry undergraguate courses, 35 credit hours (Major-20, Minor-9, Supporting-5 & Seminar-1) at P.G. and 30 (Major-15, Minor-8, Supporting-5 & Seminar-2) at Ph.D. levels besides research credit hours of 20 and 45 respectively in post graduate and Ph.D levels. It has so far produced 278 post graduate and 42 Ph.D students.

The department continues to play a pivotal role in development and release of new crop varieties. The founder members of this department were Dr.G.V. Chalam and Dr.P.D.Dixit who contributed substantially to crop improvement, particularly in rice, the premier crop of Odisha state. Continued effortshave been made through departmental student research to develop varieties in different crops i.e. Rice (65 varieties released till date including 12 varieties of recent release), Finger millet (1 line in AICRP testing), Maize(1 hybrid identified for release), Greengram (2 genotype in MLT), Blackgram (1 line in AICRPtesting), Horsegram (3 lines in AICRP testing).Alsothe crop improvement on Groundnut, Sesame, Mustard and Toria is being carried out.

DEPARTMENT OF SOIL SCIENCE AND AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY

The department of Soil Science & Agricultural Chemistry came into existence in 1954 right from the year of establishment of Collage of Agriculture with the objective of teaching in the undergraduate level. Subsequently post graduate courses at M. Sc.(Ag.) level were introduced in 1964 and Ph.D level in 1982 with the prime objective of doing teaching, research and extension in the field of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry. The department presently offers 38 credit hours of courses at Undergraduate level, 74 credit hours masters level including 20 credit hour of research and 74 credit hours at Ph. D level along with 45 credit hours of research. Besides, the department also offers 40 credits under experiential learning programme and the teachers are involved under RAWE programme of under graduate students in agriculture. So far, this department has produced 283 masters and 21 Ph.D students.

Faculties of the department are also involved in research either directly through various research projects or by research projects or by research works undertaken by students under M.Sc.(Ag.) and Ph.D course programmes.

The department produces (i) Consortia biofertilizers (Azotobactor + Azospirillium +PSB) ( ii) PSB and (iii) Rhizobium in the name of Sadhan 1, 2 and 3, respectively.

         The department has the facility for analysis of soil, water, plant,manure, biofertilizers and chemical fertilizers submitted by farmers, students, government and NGOs.

DEPARTMENT OF VEGETABLE SCIENCE

The Department of Vegetable Science was created during the year 2009 based on reports of a high power committee framed by ICAR who visited OUAT, Bhubaneswar emphasizing the important of Horticulture during 8th plan period. This resulted in the division of the erstwhile department of horticulture in to four separate departments with the existing human resources and physical facilities and the department started functioning from 1st April 2010. So far the department has produced 68 M.Sc.(Ag) and 11 students are continuing their M. Sc.(Ag) programme till date. Similarly 5 students have successfully completed their Ph.D. study and 18 students are continuing the Ph. D. studies in this department. Besides, the Technology & ELP course in the 4TH YR. b. Sc. (Ag). The department has facilities for smooth conduct of student’s research.

DEPARTMENT OF FRUIT SCIENCE AND HORTICULTURE TECHNOLOGY

The Department of Horticulture co-started during 1954 with the College of Agriculture and continued till 2009-10 as such. Later on, it was divided into four Departments like Fruit Science, Vegetable Science, Floriculture &Landscaping and Post Harvest Management in 2009-10.During 2013, the Department of Post Harvest Management merged in the Department of Fruit Science, as a result it was renamed as the Department of Fruit Science & Hort. Technology from 1st Jan.2013.It started functioning with a mandate of teaching, carrying out student research works related to the production, propagation, improvement and post harvest management of fruit crops and other extension activities. Provision for keeping 10 seats for M.Sc(Ag) and 5 seats for Ph. D. were made with the available funding and human resource. To cater to the needs of the students, a Horticulture Research Station with different varities of mango, banana, citrus, sapota, guava, litchi, dragon fruit and miscellaneous fruit crops is maintained. Besides there are three All India, Coordinated research projects on Cashew, Banana and Palms along with a Precision Farming Development Centre functioning under this department. Well equipped UG and PG laboratories are being maintained to render its services for undergraduate practical classes and post graduate research work.

DEPARTMENT OF FLORICULTURE AND LANDSCAPING

 

The Department of Floriculture and Landscaping was created on 29th October 2009 after bifurcation of the Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, OUAT, Bhubaneswar. The department has been functioning since 2009 with an objective of strengthening teaching, facilitating innovative research and aiming towards development of floriculture in Odisha. The department aims at development of human resources specialized in the subject at MSc.(Ag) and Ph.D. level. The mandate of the Department is development of commercial floriculture with standardization of package of practices for various traditional flower crops as well as introduction of new high value flower crops like orchids, lilium, anthurium, china aster and popularizing upcoming flower crop like hydrangea. The department has also been striving hard towards development of gardens, parks and landscaping for a clean and green environment with aesthetic value. Since inception AICRP on Medicinal and Aromatic plants (NHM) a Central Sector Scheme on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants and AICRPon Floriculture are operating under the Department at Biotechnology cum Tissue Culture Centre . These projects are involved in research on ornamental crops like marigold rose, tuberose, gladiolus, chrysanthemum and medicinal crops viz. sarpagandha, pippali, citronella, lemon grass, kewda etc. Recently research on native /indigenous crops of the state like water lilies, lotus and orchids has also been initiated. The department is presently offering 3 elective courses at graduation level viz. Hort(E)- 221(Landscaping), Hort(E)-323 (Protected cultivation)and ELP(Hi-tech Horticulture).

After creation of the department 54 MSc.(Ag) and 2 Ph.D. students have completed their study successfully. Presently 12 students for MSc.(Ag) and 15 students for Ph.D degree are continuing their study in this department. Since inception 10 students have been placed in Banks as Specialist officers (Agriculture), 15 students as Assistant Horticulture Officer/ Assistant Agriculture Officer in the Govt. sector, 5 students in private sector, 7 students in OUAT and 5 students in other Agriculture Universities (SOA, Centurion& Gunupur)

DEPARTMENT OF NEMATOLOGY

 

The Nematological research and education in College of Agriculture, OUAT, Bhubaneswar was initiated with the pioneering effort of Dr. S. N. Das, the then Associate Professor, Plant Pathology by opening a section of Nematology in the Department of Plant Pathology during 1970. Under his dynamic leadership and vision, he founded the full-fledged independent Department of Nematology, first of its kind among State Agricultural Universities (SAUs) in India during 1972, offering both Under Graduate and Post Graduate teaching in Nematology. Subsequently Ph.D. programme was introduced during 1999. Apart from P.G. and Ph. D course programmes, this department also offers Nematology courses in the Under graduate classes of College of Agriculture, Bhubaneswar (2 credit hours) ,College of Agriculture, Chiplima (2 credit hours), College of Agriculture, Bhawanipatna (2 credit hours), College of Horticulture, Chipilima (2 credit hours) and College of Forestry, Bhubaneswar (2 credit hours), 35 credit hours (Major 20, Minor-9, Supporting-5 & Seminar-1) at P.G. level and 30 (Major-15, Minor-8, Supporting-5 and seminer-2) at Ph.D. level besides research credit hours of 20 and 45 respectively in P.G. and Ph.D. levels. It has produced 191 post graduate students and 19 Ph.D. students. Besides, this department also offer courses of 3 credits (combined course) of basic Agriculture for managers in ABM. Faculties of the department are also involved in research either directly through various research works under taken by students under P.G. and Ph.D. course programme.

This department has the facilities for the analysis of soil samples and plant sample for isolation and identification of plant parasitic nematodes submitted by farmers, students, Govt. officials and other agencies.

DEPARTMENT OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY

 

The Department of Plant Physiology started under the department of Agricultural Botany as an undergraduate subject when the college of Agriculture was established in 1954 at Bhubaneswar. In 1960, Post graduate department in Agricultural Botany was opened in which Plant Physiology was taught as a major subject and students were conducting research in Plant Physiology for their thesis leading to M.Sc (Ag) degree. A separate Post Graduate department of Plant Physiology was created in the year 1972 and Dr.P.C.Paricha became the first Head of the Department leading the department up to 1988. Research and teaching at Post graduate level were carried out in various branches of Plant metabolism and physiology of growth and yield, mineral nutrition, water relation of crop plants, stress physiology, plant growth regulations, reproductive and developmental physiology, seed physiology, storage and post-harvest physiology. Ph.D program in plant physiology was started in the year 1999 with an intake capacity of 4 seats. The department has one undergraduate laboratory to accommodate 32 students and a well equipped post-graduate laboratory in the name of Dr.P.C.Paricha for conducting research work of PG & Ph.D students with the facilities for analysis of plant sample for micro and macro nutrients, amino acids, protein, carbohydrates, photosynthetic pigments etc. Till date, 159 students have received their Master's degree and 09 have received their Ph.D degree in Plant Physiology.
