College Of Argiculture


The College of Agriculture, Vellayani was established in May, 1955 and continues as the Centre of undergraduate and Post Graduate education. The institution was set up in the palace building belonging to the royal family of erstwhile Travancore-Cochin State. Within few years the College got sufficiently strengthened to claim a parity with any other leading Agricultural Institution in India. Post graduate programmes, leading to M.Sc. (Ag.) and Ph.D. degrees were started in the college during 1962 and 1965 respectively. Simultaneous development of the College farm provided field facilities for giving adequate work experience for the B.Sc.(Ag.) course and for conducting researches of M.Sc. (Ag.) and Ph.D. students.

When the Agricultural University was established in Kerala during 1972, the College of Agriculture, Vellayani had grown up adequately to form the major constituent of the University. With the inclusion of this institution in the Agricultural University, the agricultural education and research in the state underwent tremendous changes and development. The `trimester' system of teaching with `internal evaluation' was introduced in the University and it emerged as a novel ideal system in the field of agricultural education. Now the teaching is done under the related `semester system'. The College of Agriculture, Vellayani has now become the nerve centre of agricultural research and education in the Southern State.
