Overview

The Faculty of Agriculture (FOA) of Agriculture and Forestry University (AFU)is a vital faculty within Agriculture and Forestry University considering the faculty strength, staff number as well as the number of students enrolled both in undergraduate and post graduate programs. Its excellence in teaching, research, and outreach activities in agriculture has been recognized both at the national and international levels.

Recently, this faculty has expanded its undergraduate program (B.Sc.Ag.) through the College of Natural Resources Management, Puranchaur in Kaski. 

It encourages, facilitates, and supports faculty members and students for research and scholarly activities relevant to the needs of concerned stakeholders.
