About Us

Institute of Sustainable Agrotechnology is a one-stop centre to innovate agriculture technology through the convergence of Biotechnology (BT) with information and Engineering Technology (IT and ET) aims at achieving sustainable productivity, resource use efficiency and socio-economic acceptability. The UniMAP’s seven research clusters of engineering specialization will provide additional support. The concept of E-farming will be promoted to increase farming activities by adopting the following techniques : Increase Efficiency by Application of Engineering Technology and Electronics/Wireless Connectivity, Economic Independence by Increasing Entrepreneurship and Empowerment, Environment Stewardship by Eco-friendly farming Practices and Education/Extension Services.
