Institute of Agricultural Sciences (1969) and a full-fledged university in 1975. U.P. College of Veterinary Science & Animal Husbandry, Mathura was merged with the university at that time.

An incident in late 2008 revealed the extent of politicization in university administration. The politician Rahul Gandhi was prevented from using the college auditorium to address students, and met them in the canteen instead[1]; the move was attributed to the Chief Minister Mayawati. Subsequently, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, V.K. Suri, was ousted by the governor, T.V. Rajeswar, a Gandhi family appointee[2]. The incident was cited in the media as evidence of the politicization of education, and a cartoon in the Times of India by Ajit Ninan went: "Dynasty related questions are answered by Rahulji's foot soldiers. The university now enjoys its jurisdiction over 28 districts of 6 divisions of Uttar Pradesh state. The location of university is about 8 Km North-West of Kanpur Central railway station.

Vice-Chancellor Messages
Indian Agriculture had been guided in the past mostly by the pressing and hammering demands for food which could be solved with the concerted efforts of agricultural scientists and the farmers, and with appropriate financial and policy support of the Government. Present day agriculture is still a very complex activity in which agricultural research, education and extension are complimentary to each other. To meet the food demand of increasing population, agricultural scientists have to ensure food and nutritional security on one hand and save environmental degradation on the other hand. The concern is often expressed about our sustained, cost effective and eco- friendly progress in agriculture. We have the responsibility not only to provide the nutritional security economically to the rising population of the country, but also export surplus to earn more foreign exchange, generate more job opportunity as well as self employment in this sector to gain higher income on long term and sustainable basis for the farming community. There is no doubt that India will be a formidable force to reckon with as we move into the next millennium, with opportunities expanding through globalization of agriculture. In the changed scenario, in addition of ensuring food and nutrition security, agricultural development in the future would also be guided by profitability, competitiveness and efficiency in our agricultural production as well as export. Our research strategy in future must lay greater emphasis on sustainability and profitability, increase input use efficiency, diversification, adoption of organic farming, using bio-resources, post harvest management, value addition and ensuring quality. Availability of Human Resource, especially in high technology areas and linkage among the institutions, industries and export houses for resource efficiency and quality are of high priority in present context.
