About the Programme
M.Sc. (Ag.) in Soil Science course is adopted by following ICAR curriculum. CUTM believes in digitalization of agriculture and in the direction, the department focuses on UAV-based image capturing through hyper spectral camera and soil analysis, soil mapping by GEE and storage of soil test data in Kalgudi app, application of nano nutrients to crops. Further, the department provides service to the farmers by testing the soil. After completion of M.Sc. (Ag.) in Soil Science, students can opt to carry out research on physico-chemical and biological soil properties and crop nutrient management. The lab is equipped with digital soil testing meter, UAV and hyper spectral and multispectral camera along with other instruments. The department has qualified faculty and supporting staffs.
