 The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) is the apex body for coordinating, guiding, and

managing research and education in agriculture in the entire country under the aegis of DARE,
Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare. Considering the importance of agricultural education,
the University Education Commission (1948) chaired by Dr. S. Radhakrishnanrecommended the
establishment of Rural Universities in the country. As a result, the first State Agricultural
University was established in 1960 at Pantnagar on the pattern of the Land Grant Colleges of the
United States.
The ICAR-AU system of India has 74 Agricultural Universites comprising 63 State Agricultural,
Veterinary, Horticultural and Fisheries Universities (SAUs), 4 ICAR-DUs, viz. IARI, IVRI, NDRI and CIFE,
3 Central Agricultural Universities (CAU, Imphal, Dr. RPCAU, Pusa and RLB CAU, Jhansi), 4 Central
Universities (CUs) having Faculty of Agriculture (BHU, AMU, Viswa Bharati and Nagaland University).
The National Agricultural Research, Education and Extension System (NAREES) of India is one of the
largest in the world, admitting more than 27000 graduates, 14000 post-graduates and 4700 Ph.Ds
annually, in different disciplines of Agriculture and Allied Sciences.
During 2019-20, against the total of 2784 Seats, 2189 candidates were recommended by ICAR for
admission to accredited Bachelor degree programmes in 59 accredited AUs under the ICAR-AU
