The Agriculture Labs provide students with various opportunities to learn and conduct experiments, which play a crucial role in the on-going intellectual development of students at any academic level. These labs provide students the time, space, and resources to explore, it also gives a wide range of testing programs for soils, water, plants, bio-solids, and other agricultural materials.

Agricultural laboratories are reflected as a main element of secondary agricultural education, and are well matched to provide students with openings to develop problem–solving skills through experiential learning.

Modern era Labs provide agricultural lab tests in every way regarding the formation of seed as well as learning harvest techniques for prospective engineers pursuing to increase their production. From backyard planters to family farms to viable farmers, NAL tests livestock wastes, grain, fruits, produce, dairy, vineyards, poultry, water, soil, and tissue.

Farm Machinery & Power Engineering Lab

Farm Machinery Laboratory

The Farm Machinery Laboratory is one of the central laboratories of the Agricultural Engineering Department. It mainly comprises of the machinery for seed plantation, inter-cultural operations, soil preparations, plant protection, harvesting and threshing.

The laboratory includes the power tiller operated, tractor operated, animal operated ,self-propelled, stationary engine operated, as well as manually operated equipment. The machineries are being used for practical classes and for all purposes. The cut-sections of different machinery are the main highlights of laboratory which aids to enlighten the students of the different modules.
