OUAT plans 10 agro-polytechs by next session

Following is an excerpt from an Indian Express report in ibnlive.com.

The 10 proposed agro-polytechnics by the Odisha University of Agriculture & Technology (OUAT) in the agro-climatic zones of the State would come up by the next academic session beginning July-August. These polytechnics would offer two-year diploma course for Plus-II pass-outs in the disciplines of agriculture, fisheries, animal science and horticulture. While one each polytechnic will be dedicated for horticulture, fisheries, animal science, the remaining seven will impart training on agriculture.

The polytechnics will also provide certificate courses for school dropouts in various disciplines.

… The OUAT had last year proposed to set up the polytechnics aiming to help the grassroots-level people in the field of technology transfer and guiding farmers in improving their economy.

These polytechnics would churn out agro-technicians, who can earn a living by doing agricultural jobs for the farmers on payment basis or just establishing their own ventures such as seed production, nursery management, food processing and preservation and bio-fertiliser production.

There is a great need for such intermediate-level technicians who can convince the local farmers about low-risk technologies and their applications for better yield.

V-C Ray said the agro-polytechnics would function close to agriculture research stations and Krishi Vigyan Kendras as there will be optimum utilisation of teachers, support staff, equipment and appliances and other existing facilities. “If required, additional infrastructure would be set up for the purpose,” Ray said.

OUAT plans a college of Diary Technology in Baripada

Following is from Priya Abraham’s report in Telegraph.

Private institutes in the state have started approaching the Odisha University Agriculture of Technology (OUAT) for affiliation, following passing of the OUAT bill.

The bill was passed on August 23 amending the Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology Act, 1965, to enable the university to accord affiliation to institutions in the private sector for imparting education in agriculture, veterinary, fisheries, forestry and allied sciences.

While two private colleges in the capital have approached the authorities, a former professor of the varsity is said to be considering the idea of setting up an agricultural college, sources said.

… While students are keen to take admission in the constituent colleges of the OUAT, the existing intake capacity of the varsity is limited.

This year, the university had received about 12,000 applications for admission in 608 seats in various courses in the colleges of agriculture, agricultural engineering, fisheries, veterinary science and home science.

The university is also working towards the establishment of two constituent colleges. There will be a college of veterinary science in Sambalpur and a college in dairy technology in Baripada.

OUAT plans a College of Veterinary Science in Chipilima, Sambalpur: Dharitri; Update: A new College of Horticulture in Khurda is also planned

Currently there is a College of Agriculture and a College of Horticulture in Chipilima.This will be the third OUAT College in Chipilima.

Following is an excerpt from a report inibnlive.com.

The State Government has decided to open another College of Horticulture at Khurda on OUAT’s existing School of Horticulture premises for development of manpower in the sector.

Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy announced this while speaking at the 50th foundation day of the Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology here on Wednesday.

Currently OUAT has only one College of Horticulture in Chipilima. This will be its second college of Horticulture. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orissa_University_of_Agriculture_and_Technology for the list of Colleges of OUAT.

OUAT ammendment bill passed; now OUAT can accord affiliation to institutions in the private sector for imparting education in agriculture, veterinary, fisheries, forestry and allied sciences.

Following is from a report in ibnlive.com.

The Assembly on Monday passed a Bill amending the Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology Act, 1965. The amendment enables OUAT to accord affiliation to institutions in the private sector for imparting education in agriculture, veterinary, fisheries, forestry and allied sciences.

… While students are keen to take admission in the constituent colleges of OUAT, the existing intake capacity is limited. The university has received about 12,000 applications for admission into various courses while the total number of seats available in the colleges of agriculture, agricultural engineering, fisheries, veterinary science and home science is 608.

Many private organisations have evinced interest to set up institutions to provide quality education in agriculture and allied sciences. This will benefit the State which is based on agrarian economy, the minister added.

While leader of the Opposition sought to know from the Minister if any other Agriculture University of the country has such a provision to affiliate private institutions, the latter said that Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh had taken the lead.

The OUAT Ammendment Bill 2011 is being discussed in the Odisha assembly; if passed, it will pave way to private agricultural colleges affiliated to OUAT

One of the main aspect of this bill is that it will allow private agricultural colleges to be affiliated to OUAT. I think this is a good move and if what is mentioned in the excerpt below from ibnlive.com is true, it is surprising that no other state agricultural university allows that.

… none of the 38 agriculture universities in the country has given permission to any private organisation to set up college in agriculture, veterinary and allied sciences, he wanted to know as to why the State Government is so keen on allow entry of private sector in the State. Discussion on the Bill remained inconclusive.

From my quick research I found the following:

So even if what is mentioned in the ibnlive.com article is true, why should Odisha take a lead for once and allow OUAT to have affiliated private colleges.

A new College of Forestry and several new post graduate programs debut at OUAT Bhubaneswar

Following is from Dharitri.

Note that OUAT has had a Department of Forestry since 1987. Following are excerpts from a report in the Telegraph about this new college. 

… Apart from the usual four-year graduate programme in forestry, the college has announced PG programmes in agro-forestry, forest products, environment management, plant genetic improvement and forest business management for the current academic year 2010-11.

Each course has six seats with four reserved for candidates from Orissa.

Two seats would be offered to students from other states and abroad.

… Addressing mediapersons here today, Prof Rabindra Kumar Patnaik said: “With the launch of these PG programmes, more students will get opportunities to work in sectors such as afforestation drives, reclamation of land after mining, research positions in forestry. The demand for such students is quite good outside India.”

The College of Forestry, … has become the 16th institute in the country to have PG programmes on the subject.

“It has also faculties for five departments like silviculture and agro-forestry, forest products and utilisation, forest biology and tree improvement, natural resource management and forest policy and law,’’ he said.

“Apart from academics and creating quality human resources in forestry, this newly-opened College of Forestry will address many research issues on forestry, livelihood, natural resource management (NRM), tree improvement and problems of climate change. It will also address many policy issues on forestry and environment,’’ he added.

… PG programme in forestry is not offered anywhere else in the eastern part of India,” he said.
