Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture & Technology

The birth of Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology, Udaipur (MPUAT) was a result of bifurcation of the Rajasthan Agricultural University, Bikaner in 1999. The University started functioning in full swing with effect from December 1, 1999. The bifurcation was needed because of a wide variety of physiographic variation including crops, cropping pattern, climate, soil parameters, etc. in the largest state of the country. 

The jurisdiction of the university include constituent colleges, Agricultural Research Stations (ARSs), Agricultural Research Sub Stations (ARSSs), Livestock Research Station (LRS), Dryland Farming Research Station (DFRS),  and Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) spread over 7 districts of the south and south eastern part of the state of Rajasthan. These districts are Udaipur, Rajsamand, Dungarpur, Banswara, Chittorgarh, Bhilwara and Pratapgarh..
