Modern botany traces its roots back to Ancient Greece specifically to Theophrastus (c. 371-287 BC), a student of Aristotle who invented and described many of Its principles and is widely regarded in the scientific community as the “Father of Botany”.

The history of botany examines the human effort to understand life on Earth by tracing the historical development of the discipline of botany-that part of natural science dealing with organisms traditionally treated as plants.

The word "botany", like many other scientific studies, comes from Ancient Greek botan - a word that has multiple meanings including "pasture" or "fodder". It includes anything that could be considered a plant, including flowering plants, algae, fungi and vascular plants such as ferns. It generally includes trees, but more often than not and increasingly, this is a specialized area. Today, it is part of a wider study of ecology and all theattributes of natural science that implies.

In view of lively rural surroundings and rich diversity in Plants and bio-culture, there has been a candid demand for opening Botany Department in College.Botany in our college was started in 2014. It is a basic subject that has enabled budding of a lot of applied biological sciences.

The subject cannot be learnt only within the confines of the classroom or laboratory and hence regular field trips, Institutional visits and study tours/ trips are an integral part of the methodology adopted by the department to give a complete understanding of the subject. Since inception the department is looking forward for quality development of students as well as faculty members.

Teaching methods adopted to improve student learning – Well equipped Laboratory, technology aided lectures, demonstrations, group discussions, educational tours/ trips, seminars, science exhibition, participation in institutional social responsibility and extension activities.
