The Department of Applied Medicinal and Aromatic Plants Sciences focuses on widening the scope of Post-Harvest Science and Management Technology, strengthening the base of co-operative movement in Organic Farming of Medicinal Plants, encourage alternative Farming embodying the partial replacement of conventional crops/plants by underutilized (wild) species.


Out of 28,000 plant species marked by WHO as potential herbal drugs, only about 0.13% (38) are under cultivation at a marketable scale. If we take 2000 plant species which are putative as herbal medicines, even then the plants which could be brought under realistic cultivation would make around 1.9% and remaining plants for pharmaceutical purpose are still extracted from forest/wild resources (98.10%). These figures themselves speak of the scope of plant's introduction, exploration, identification, classification, domestication, cultivation, breeding (improvement), biotechnological innovation, post-harvest management, processing and global /domestic trade /marketing of medicinal plants.


The Program of Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Applied Medicinal and Aromatic Plants Sciences is specifically designed to meet the demands of the growing need of experts in the above mentioned fields of medicinal plants and their plantation. Expert knowledge of the Morphology and the Therapeutic properties of medicinal plants has led the Degree holders in the area of medicinal plants duly placed in the statutory bodies and Pharmaceutical Industries.
