College of Agriculture, Vellayani was established in 1955. The college is affiliated to Kerala Agricultural University. The college had grown up adequately to form the major constituent of the University. With the inclusion of this institution in the Agricultural University, the agricultural education and research in the state underwent tremendous changes and development. The teaching is done in the college under the related semester system. The college has now become the nerve centre of agricultural research and education in the Southern State.
The college offers postgraduate and undergraduate courses. In addition to these courses, many research programs are undertaken by the scientists sanctioned by the external funding agencies. Much stress is being given at the under graduate level to train the students in all the farm operations. They have to raise all the important crops of the State in small plots in the college farm under the `work experience' programme. The college is a pioneering institution of its kind in the state and has shouldered heavy responsibilities in evolving suitable technologies needed for the development of Agriculture in the State.
