A++ Ranked SRM University


SRM University (SRM Institute of Science and Technology) has moved to establish SRM College of Agricultural Sciences with the mission to;

  1. Contribute to the initiatives on "Doubling the farmer's income" and "Sustainable Development Goals".
  2. Promote agroecological and climate-smart principles to support the adaptation of agricultural and allied activities for food and livelihood security.
  3. Develop innovative technologies and farm machinery for hilly and tribal agriculture.

SRM has also adopted Precision farming, which is a key component of the third wave of modern agricultural revolutions.

The precision farming approach to crop production may be viewed as a four-step process. An initial step in this process is spatial measurement of those factors that limit or otherwise affect crop production. This variability data is then used to develop a management plan for the variable application of inputs such as, fertilizers and herbicides. Inputs are applied in precision field operations. The effectiveness of precision farming system is evaluated with respect to economics and environmental impacts.
