Agricultural curriculum needs to be updated, modern and practical: Minister

Agriculture Minister Dr Muhammad Abdur Razzaque on Saturday said that the curriculum of all the agricultural universities needs to be up to the minute, modern and practical, in order to meet challenges in the agricultural sector.

He made the call while addressing a webinar titled "Role of Modern Curriculum in Creating Skilled Agricultural Graduates" organised by the Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University.

Minister Razzaque said the biggest challenge in agriculture of Bangladesh as well as the entire globe is to provide safe and nutritious food for all. Although the population is increasing day by day, the cultivable land is declining rapidly.

Agriculture and food security were already under threat due to global warming and climate change, he said adding that the situation further worsened during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“The global food chain is going through an extreme crisis.

To meet these challenges, skilled and well-trained agricultural graduates need to be prepared. It is possible only through up-to-date, modern and practical curriculum,” Dr Razzaque added.

He also stressed on developing sustainable marketing and processing systems in home and abroad through the commercialization of agriculture.

Agriculture Secretary Md Nasiruzzaman, former Education secretary NI khan, former Governor of Bangladesh Bank Dr Atiur Rahman, Vice-Chancellor of Bangladesh Agricultural University Professor Lutful Hasan, also spoke there among others.
