The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut was established on October 2, 2000 under THE UTTAR PRADESH (KRISHI EVAM PRODYOGIK VISHWAVIDYALAYA ADHINIYAM) 1958.

The College of Agriculture, being the largest college, is engaged in teaching, research and extension activities. The Indian Council of Agricultural Research has been periodically appointing Deans Committees for revision of course curriculum. In the series, Fifth Deans Committee was constituted by the ICAR, New Delhi and given terms of reference considering contemporary challenges for employability of passing out graduates and to adopt a holistic approach for quality improvement in agricultural education.
In view of above, the course curricula of B.Sc.(Hons.) Agriculture has been restructured to develop much needed skills and entrepreneurial mind-set among the graduates to take up self employment, contribute to enhanced rural livelihood and food security, sustainability of agriculture and be propeller for agricultural transformation. Considering the Fifth Dean’s Committee Recommendations, the course curricula of B.Sc.(Hons.) Agriculture degree programme has been revised by the Academic Council and implemented in the university from Ist Semester, academic session 2016 – 17. In order to reorient agriculture graduates, the introduction of READY (Rural and Entrepreneurship Awareness Development Yojana) Program is an essential prerequisite for the award of degree to ensure In-Plant-Training (IPT) / Hands-On-Training (HOT).
Agriculture Education is the most important basic public good to produce adequately trained scientific human resources capable of carrying out teaching, research and transfer of technology activities. More than 60% of the population in India lives in rural areas and engaged in diverse farm and non-farm activities.
