The idea was to reorganize and strengthen the system of agricultural and allied education in India.
Today, there are 40 universities dedicated to agriculture, 12 to veterinary sciences, 4 to horticulture and specialized ones in forestry, dairy, fisheries etc., adding up to around 60. Despite the growth, very few universities match the global standards, particularly in research. Most universities need to divert their efforts on high quality research interface with biotech and nanotech, and engage with manifold stakeholders and super speciality research organizations, corporate houses etc. IARI, IVRI and PAU Ludhiana are good in publication output, while TNAU, IARI and FRI excel in patenting activity. Most of them score well in learning.
