Agriculture courses, a big hit in Tamil Nadu!

At a time when the engineering craze seems to be fading away, it is time for basics. It is a fact that agriculture graduates are also sought after in the rural banking sector, they are doing well in civil services exams, and the promise of an upcoming 'second green revolution' which is needed for ensuring food security are different factors which are bringing a change.

It is increasingly drawing school-leaving candidates towards the courses. The agriculture courses are now a hot favourite since both state and central governments are planning to give a fillip to the agriculture sector which needs more agriculture graduates.  With the population in Indian villages getting down from 68% to 42%, the government is taking new initiatives.

They are looking at retaining able and skillful youth in villages. The Indian Council of Agricultural Research's program titled Attracting Rural Youth to Agriculture (ARYA) is one effort in this direction where the government has also increased the number of agriculture universities in TN from 39 to more than 60 currently.

The same trend is also expected to take shape slowly in other states in India which are worried over food security and the nightmare of unchecked urbanization. Agriculture has always been the backbone for India and a lot of economical growth and stability depends on it. On a practical note, it has tremendous potential to generate income and that too tax free so this is indeed a good move.
