Today’s Anand Agricultural University (AAU) first budded as ‘Krushigovidhya Bhavan’ under the legacy of stalwarts like Shri Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Shri K. M. Munshi with a motto of transmission of culture and civilization through agricultural education which then transformed to Gujarat Agricultural University (GAU) from which AAU metamorphosed in 2004 with a view of location specific agriculture by Government of Gujarat who segregated GAU into 4 Universities. We have passed several notable milestones and consistently improved on many fronts that have a bearing on achieving academic excellence. The inner spirit of India is calling us to establish a great center on this land, where all intellectual forces will gather for the purpose to create the wealth of knowledge. So, in 2004, we began with four degree colleges and have reached to 10 in 2011 which offers Diploma in 5 streams, Undergraduate Degree in 6 faculties and Post Graduate Degree in 6 faculties apart from excellent research and extension wings. We have endeavored to create a highly inspiring atmosphere and learning environment in a beautiful campus. Apart from quality education, AAU shoulders the responsibility of agricultural research of par excellence meeting the escalating demands of food grains as well as successful transfer of technologies through a strong network of extension education imparted to the farmers. Combined efforts have escalated the decadal agricultural growth of the state to a new peak of 10.97%.
I heartily express all my good wishes for the excellent progress of this institute and bright future for the students.
