University of Govind Ballabh Pant Agricluture & Technology History

G.B. Pant University of Agriculture & Technology is the first State Agriculture University of the country, which was the dream of many visionaries. Foundation stone of the University of Govind Ballabh Pant Agricluture & Technology was laid by the first Prime Minister of India, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru on November 17, 1960. This University of Govind Ballabh Pant Agricluture & Technology has now become a lead Institution for agricultural education, research, and extension in the country.

Being the first Agricultural University of the country established on the Land Grant Pattern of U.S.A., it has always occupied an eminent place amongst the State Agricultural Universities ( SAUs ) of India for the last five decades. At the time of food crisis in the country, University of Govind Ballabh Pant Agricluture & Technology played a pivotal role in ushering the green revolution. Owing to its valuable contributions, Nobel Laureate, Dr. N.E. Borlaug has aptly remarked “Pantnagar is the Harbinger of the Green Revolution in India”.

During recent years, University of Govind Ballabh Pant Agricluture & Technology has made rapid strides in its areas of operations through three campus locations ( Pantnagar, Ranichauri and Bharsar ), eleven Krishi Vigyan Kendras ( KVKs ), and several research stations. The first Global Green House Gas Monitoring Station of IMD, government of India, at the Hill Campus, Ranichauri has been set up.

About 254 research projects worth about 325 million funded by various national and international organizations have been in operation. Crop diversification programmes have also been undertaken. University of Govind Ballabh Pant Agricluture & Technology has so far released 232 high yielding varieties of different crops including wheat, rice, coarse cereals, pulses, oilseeds, sugarcane, fruits, vegetables etc. which have contributed immensely to meet the challenges of national food and nutritional security.

It is gratifying that the University has taken rapid strides to address the emerging challenges for the benefit of the farming community. Recognizing its contributions, University of Govind Ballabh Pant Agricluture & Technology has been adjudged the best university in the country and conferred with the “Sardar Patel Outstanding Agricultural Institution Award” for the year 2005 and 2007.

I appeal to the fraternity of agriculture, agribusiness, home science, engineering, veterinary, basic sciences & humanities, fisheries, forestry and other intellectuals for their cooperation and to share their views and exchange of information.

We rededicate ourselves to take the University to further heights and work hard to provide leadership towards sustainable food and nutritional security.
