Department of Horticulture

The Department of Horticulture of Punjab Agricultural University is engaged in conducting research, teaching and extension work related to various aspects of fruit crops being grown since 1962. The research activity, apart from main campus at Ludhiana, is also being carried at Abohar, Bathinda, Bahadurgarh (Patiala), Gangian (Hoshiarpur), Gurdaspur and Ballowal Saunkri (Nawanshahar). The teaching work is mainly centered at Ludhiana while the extension work is being carried out from Ludhiana, FASS and KVKs’ situated in different districts of the state. The crop concept has been introduced for research in 1989. Accordingly, the teams of scientists were constituted to entrust the research work on all the aspects of a particular fruit. This approach has drastically improved the quality and quantum of research on different fruit crops. The department is also running one professional society, namely Horticultural Science Society. This society is publishing a quarterly Horticulture Newsletter, which contains the latest information relating the various aspects of horticulture for the benefit of farmers and extension workers.
