About KRISAT

Krishna College of Agriculture and Technology(KRISAT) has been set with a mission to meet the growing demand for Agro-based food production globally across India and the world using the latest technology in food production.

With the increased demand for well-trained farm scientists to translate the latest technologies into reality in sustainable food, feed, fibre and fuel (biomass) production, we are prominent in budding smart agriculture professionals to meet the current and future food demands.

With India opening its gate to WTO’s GATT and the Prime Minister’s Mission to enhance “Make in India” or the Reserve Bank Governor’s “Make for India” focus, there is an immense opportunity for local marketing within the country as well as export of value-added agricultural products to different countries of the world. For sustainable processing and value addition of farm produce, a number of new agro processing industries have to be developed in rural areas and this requires additional trained agricultural technologist and Agri-business experts.

Thus, Krishna College of Agriculture and Technology(KRISAT) aims at creating agricultural graduates with latest technology and inputs to create Green Revolution all over.

Dean's Message

Agricultural Education is not only the responsibility of the teachers but also of parents and society because an agricultural graduate should learn the art of working together with both living (plants, crops, animals, microbes etc) and panchaboothas (land, water, atmosphere, wind and heat) which requires infinite patience and love for all.
