Education in the field of agriculture in the state of Bihar was started in the year 1945 when the Bihar Agricultural College was established at the district of Bhaglapur. Later, it was realized that the agricultural situation of Southern Bihar is different from the other parts of Bihar, so a second college in Bihar for the southern region was set up with the name of Ranchi Agricultural College in the year 1955. Later in the year 1971, the first agricultural university called as Rajendra Agricultural University was established in the region of Pusa.
