It is offering courses encompassing different branches of agriculture including crop and livestock. The Discipline emphasizes the available greener technologies in academia and research.
Smart innovations in agricultural practices for crop production, postharvest operations, storage, and marketing are meager to be addressed. Keeping these in projection, the Agrotechnology Discipline of Khulna University is going to host an International Conference on “Climate Smart Agriculture and the 4th Agricultural Revolution” to be held on 19-20 October 2023. It would allow scholars from different corners of the world for sharing and disseminating smart ideas to improve the production of agricultural commodities by maintaining a greener environment in the era of climate change.
