The Hon. Governor of Rajasthan, Shivraj Singh Patil was the Chief Guest at the ceremony and while addressing the Convocation, spoke at length on the importance of Agriculture in the new world economy.

He further emphasised the need for objective agri techniques and technologies and of consistency in agri produce in the region. He spoke about the unexpected increase in food produce in the nation, but that due to the limited growth of pulses and oilseeds, India is dependant on import.

Congratulating and giving blessings to the recipients of the medals and degrees, the Hon. Governor said that the students should suitable discharge their duties towards the nation and fellow humans.

He also motivated the students to take up entrepreneurship, thereby creating job opportunities for others assist in the growth of the nation, through setting up agri clinics and agri consultancies.
