I am very glad to affirm that our Anand Agricultural University is prominently concerned with this prime endeavor of education in the field of agriculture and allied sciences that empowers us to carve our very own path to convert many unwanted endings into benefitting beginnings and serving holistically the farming community.

AAU is a land grand university of Government of Gujarat and has been carving the very slogan “कृण्वन्तो राष्ट्र कृषि संपन्नम्” in its true sense since its foundation. Education, Research and Extension Education – three dimensional activities have been remarkably contributing to shape a better tomorrow, in times to come. With a concrete concern of uplifting farming community by ever possible mean and thereby serving nation, AAU is a guiding resource to all the stakeholders for bringing hopes and happiness in their lives.

Research has given prime importance at AAU. The scientists of the University have developed technologies which have played a key role in propelling growth of agriculture in the State of Gujarat. Various research projects funded by ICAR, Government of India, Government of Gujarat and other agencies are executed. New technologies, package of practices are developed and new crop varieties are also generated at AAU from time to time. We are also focusing on reducing chemical fertilizers and pesticides responsible for polluting soil as well as agro eco-system for which advocating adoptions of organic farming, natural farming like traditional wisdom to promote “Atmanirbhar Krishi, Aatmanirbhar Bharat ”, which ultimately benefits farmers and mankind.    

Through our extension activities, we ensure that the research outcome reach to the farmers, the real stakeholders through trainings of the farmers, farm women and farm youths. AAU has implemented Government of Gujarat’s Student Startup & Innovation Policy, Agri and food incubation centre and also created industry linkages. This will help in creation of future entrepreneurs in the field of agriculture and allied sectors. AAU is amongst the very few agricultural universities in the country to make extensive use of ICT tools in teaching and administrative functions.

AAU is ranked among top 100 institutions in NIRF Ranking consecutively during 2017 to 2019. The university secured 4th position in the category of Govt. & Govt. Aided Universities at National level in the Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) – 2020 announced by the Ministry of Education (formerly the Ministry of Human Resource Development - MHRD), Govt. of India.

AAU has witnessed enormous growth in the past few years, with the kind constructive support of Hon’ble Governorshri & the Chancellor of our University as well as Govt. of Gujarat. The financial assistance from the State and the Central Governments, including ICAR is highly acknowledged. The enthusiastic involvements of university officers, scientists, faculty, supporting staff and students of AAU are noteworthy and deserve appreciation. I am sure that this saga of success would continue for all time to come.
