Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology (MPUAT) , Udaipur(Rajasthan)

Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology, Udaipur (MPUAT), the second Agricultural University of the state, (initially named as Agricultural University, Udaipur) came into existence on 1st November, 1999 by bifurcation of the Rajasthan Agricultural University, Bikaner through promulgation of Government of Rajasthan Ordinance No. 6 of 1999, which became an Act in May, 2000.

Recognizing the importance of agricultural growth and development in assuring livelihood security of its population, the Government of Rajasthan gave high priority to develop agricultural education, research and extension in the state. The first agriculture college established in the State was SKN College of Agriculture at Jobner.

Later on, in 1955, Rajasthan College of Agriculture was established at Udaipur. With the establishment of first Agricultural University at Pantnagar in 1960 on the pattern of Land Grant Universities of USA, Rajasthan state had the distinction of being the second in the establishment of Agricultural Universities in the country in 1962.

The government took the bold decision to transfer the research component to the university which many other states took a long time.  Soon the university was converted into multi-faculty in 1964.  Later on, separate Agricultural University was created in 1987 at Bikaner by bifurcating from the Sukhadia University, Udaipur.
