Welcome to another detailed post about BSc agriculture. In this post, I will be giving you complete information regarding BSc agriculture salary per month in India. I will also tell you about the different sectors where you can join and also the salaries they provide.
First of all, I want to tell you that BSc Agriculture is recognized as a professional course by the government of India. That means the pay scale in the government sector will be equal to MBBS, BDS, BAMS, B.Tech graduates. 😀
Everyone out there has a question in their mind before joining the BSc agriculture course in India.
What is the Salary after BSc Agriculture Course?
The basic salary of a BSc Agri graduate will start from Rs.15,000 to Rs.50,000 per month. This is just the basic salary a graduate can get. If you pursue postgraduation after BSc agriculture, then you will be able to get a salary than the above.
The salary of BSc Agri pass out will differ in different sectors. If you join the government sector then you will be paid much far better than the private sector. In the government sector, you will also be having many benefits like pension schemes, insurance schemes, salary hikes, promotions, etc.
I personally know many people who are earning more than Rs.40,000 per month in the private sector. They were able to crack the interviews and also a few of them had good work experience. Yes, it is true that you will be able to earn more with your experience.
As of now, there is a great demand for BSc agriculture graduates due to the booming organic food market. In western countries, you can earn a lot with experience in agricultural research and engineering.
I would be great f you could be able to work in European countries where you will be able to earn more than in India.
My personal advice: Don’t let yourself down if you are not able to secure a good position and salary in the Agricultural field. Agri market is expanding like anything. So, think, and make things creative. Most of the people change their field without knowing about the future of agriculture.
My Personal Advice 2: It will be good if you take admission in ICAR recognized colleges. Only students who have passed out from an ICAR recognized university can join jobs in the government sector.
