The Radhakrishnan University Education Commission of 1949 emphasised the need for establishing Agricultural Universities in India., Subsequently, the indo-American team consistitued under the Chairmanship of Dr. K.R. Damle (1955), the then Vice-president of Indian Council of Agricultural Research, suggested a system of education for Indian as followed in the Land Grant Colleges of USA. In 1956, Dr. J.H. Longwell from the University of Misouri visited Orissa and had discussion with the State Government which resulted in a contract between the Government of India and the University of Missouri to provide assistance to the Agriculture and Veterinary Colleges of the State. In 1961, the Legislature of the State of Orissa enacted the Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology Act, 1961 with the object of establishing and incorporating a University of Agriculture and Technology for the agricultural education of the people of the State. Affiliated colleges of Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology are as follows. 1. Bhava institute of medical science & research Bhubaneswar 2.

Agro-Polytechnic Prospectus 2016-17 The department offers course programme under the semester system leading to M.Sc. in Agricultural Statistics with an intake capacity of 4 students. The department also offers 4 minor courses of 13 credit hours to P.G. & Ph.D. students of other disciplines of College of Agriculture, College of Agriculture Engineering & Technology, College of Veterinary Science & A.H. and College of Home Science. Forestry and Home Science and 12 major courses of 62 credit hours to the students of M.Sc. in Agricultural Statistics. The labs are well equipped with 35 computers. The department is offering two courses on computer are “ Introduction to Computer Application " of 4 credit hours at U.G. levels and “ Data Analysis using Statistical Package & Statistical Computing " of 5 credit hours at P.G. level. The department shares the major responsibility of advising and guiding post-graduate students and research workers of various disciplines of the University regarding planning of experiments, analysis of research data and their interpretations. The main area of research of the department covers problems relating to sample survey, design of experiment, econometrics and agricultural statistics. The department executed two research projects viz. i) “Evaluation of the effectiveness of training and Visit system of the state department of agriculture in coastal zone of Odisha” sponsored by IASRI (ICAR) during 1989-96. About 120 papers have been published by the faculty members individually and also jointly in various National (100) and International (20) journals. Forty theses of M.Sc. (Agricultural Statistics) have been produced by the students of this department. Four practical manuals viz. i) Statistical Methods, ii) Computer Application, iii) Computer Programming and iv) Design of Experiment have also been prepared for the use of students in their practical class. Running Research & Projects: NAIP project on “Strengthening Statistical Computing for NARS” funded by World Bank is operating in the University. Dr. A. K. Parida, Asso. Prof. of this department is the Nodal Officer who looks after installation of SAS Software to all teacher-scientists of the university along with strengthening statistical computing. Under this project about 100 computers have been installed with the software and also 100 teacher-scientists have been trained.
