PRELUDE

Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences & Technology (SKUAST) was

established with headquarter at Shalimar in August, 1982 through an Act of Jammu & Kashmir

State Legislature with its jurisdiction throughout the State of Jammu and Kashmir. However,

an amendment in Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (Act

1982) was promulgated through SRO-408 dated 20-09-1999, wherein SKUAST was

bifurcated in SKUAST-J & SKUAST-K with restriction of the territorial jurisdiction to

Jammu and Kashmir Divisions, respectively. The SKUAST-K is a multi-campus institution with

headquarter at Shalimar, Srinagar. The academic programmes of the University are run at 06

campuses viz. Shalimar, Shuhama,Wadura, Rangil, Benihama & Mirgund. Almost all the

programmes of the study offered by the University at Graduate and Postgraduate levels are

accredited by Accreditation Board of Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi.

The University has excellent infrastructure and facilities for teaching, research and

extension education in Agriculture and allied sciences with state of the art laboratories. These

three basic mandates of the University are being achieved by location- and mandate- specific

05 different Subject Matter Faculties, 02 Constituent Colleges, 26 Research

Stations/Centres/Institutes/Mountain Agro-ecosystem(Temperate/Cold Arid), 13 Krishi

Vigyan Kendras and 01 Extension Training Centre placed in different districts of Kashmir and

Ladakh Divisions of the State. The University supports student learning, development and

achievement by providing tools and opportunities for their educational and professional growth.

The University is treading with big strides to achieve excellence specifically in Mountain

Agricultural Systems of temperate and cold arid types. It is emerging in academic and

research arenas as a seat of excellent learning and capacity building in Agriculture & allied
