Description of Crop Diseases and Their Management

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in view of the suggestions of the Fourth Deans Committee has recently modified the course curriculum for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of Agricultural Sciences. The Council has prescribed three courses each of three credits, namely, Diseases of Field Crops, Diseases of Fruit and Flowering Crops, and Diseases of Plantation, Spice and Medicinal Plants; and Diseases of Vegetable Crops for postgraduate students as optional courses. 

These three courses are usually opted for by students of various disciplines such as Entomology, Nematology, Horticulture, Vegetable Sciences, and Agronomy as optional with the objective to receive updated information on various important plant diseases that concern the country. These courses are gaining popularity with an enhanced emphasis on Field and Horticulture in the current five-year plan. 

The students find these courses helpful in various competitive examinations and later during service periods as Plant Protection Officer, District Horticulture Officer and other Government jobs in the Directorate of Agriculture, Horticulture and Plant Protection.
