Agriculture for IAS and IFoS

A short introduction

Every year many candidates make it to final list with Agriculture as optional subjects in Civil Services Examination. The number is much higher in the IFoS Examination.

The subject has gained popularity due to many factors.

  1. The syllabus is short and easily manageable
  2. Much of the subject is of such nature that it can be well understood by student of any background
  3. Its Paper II is very similar to Botany Paper II. Thus, there is an obvious advantage of overlap if a candidate is also opting for Botany optional.
  4. The subject has been well scoring with a remarkable consistency.
  5. Many areas of the syllabus directly help in General Studies, especially in Geography and Economy parts.
  6. With help of some recent information culled from newspapers and magazines, it is possible to raise the score level considerably.

The Agriculture Course offered by Evolution has been capitalising upon the strengths of this optional and making it all the more an attractive proposition.

  • Our faculty drawn from IARI and other premier Institutions
  • Well organised notes
