About the Department

 


View Photos

The Department came into being in 1965 with Prof. N. Dutt as Head and Professors AB Mukherjee, P.Roy, D. K. Nanda as teachers. Prof. P. Sen was Emiratus Professor. It started in the then Birla College Building (now in possession of WBUAFS) at Mohanpur, which later shifted to Kalyani Building and again back to Mohanpur in the first floor of newly established faculty building in 1990. First batch students were Dr. M.K. Panda, Mr. Pandit and Mr. Ramakrishna.

Initially there was no specialization but later four majors used to be offered from this Department viz. Economic Entomology, Toxicology, Nematology and Acarology.
