Department of Entomology

 The history of the Department of Entomology dates back to the beginning of formal agricultural education and research in Sindh, through the establishment of King George V Institute of Agriculture at Sakrand in 1939. With the up gradation of the Institute to Agriculture College and its shifting to Tandojam, the department remained its vital component.  Later on in 1965, the department started B.Sc Agri. (Hons) degree in the field of Entomology. Presently, being an important component of the Faculty of Crop Protection, the Department offers a 4-year B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Entomology. In addition, it has a very strong post graduate program offering M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree programs. The department has all basic facilities of teaching such as class rooms, research laboratories, insect museum, library and experimental field. The modern research laboratory has also been established for rearing bio-control agents. The Department is actively involved in basic and applied research financed by various national and international donors. Department provides free agricultural extension services to the farming community and  organizes short courses, trainings/ workshops for  farmers, students, NGO’s, Agriculture extension  and research workers.
