ABSTRACT

It is debatable whether entrepreneurship is a discipline, an aptitude or an attitude or probably all three; but the time has come to identify and reinforce courses in agricultural economics which can help a future graduate set up a farm confidently and successfully. It will take some co-ordination and re-organization of the internship year such that each student association within NAAS (National Association of Agricultural Students) can mount a pilot mini-project in each identified area of need, e.g. poultry, pigs, rabbits, vegetables, ornamental plants, organic fertilizers, orchard gardens, soya milk, soya cakes, etc. The NAAS and the faculty leadership can solicit funds for this novel enterprise which will enhance confidence, competence and proficiency for our graduates of the 21st century.
