A student from an Indian university has for the first time achieved a major milestone in the field of agriculture.
Kavita Faman, a final year student of MSc Agriculture (Agronomy), has bagged a massive job package of Rs 1 crore.
The package was offered to her by a major Canadian agriculture firm. Faman has been offered the role of Production Manager, which means she’ll be supervising the manufacture of agro chemicals when she joins the Manitoba office later this month. Oh yeah, and she’ll be getting paid about Rs 1 crore a year for her efforts.
Faman very much earned the massive salary. The offer was made based on a preliminary test as well as interviews conducted by the company’s officials, both of which she apparently aced.
“Agri science is at the cusp of a technology led disruption,” Faman said about her new posting. “From innovations in biotechnology to usage of data science, the field is embracing the latest technologies and Monsanto is at the forefront of it. I am extremely excited to join the company and will strive to absorb as much as I can over the next few years.”
Based on comments by Loverly Professional University’s School of Agriculture Dean, Dr Ramesh Kumar, Faman is one of their brightest stars to have ever gone through the program.
“This proves that there are massive career opportunities in agriculture for those who are willing to learn and work hard,” he said. “We hope to see more students following Kavita’s footsteps in the future.”
The school itself is considered one of the foremost agro institutes in the country. As practical experience, they even have farmland spread across 1,000 acres so students can conduct their research.
