If one is keen to puruse to MBA after completin g B.Tech Agriculture than one should ideally consider doing MBA Agri Business.Agri-business explores production, marketing and trading of products related to agriculture. The MBA programme also covers improved growing techniques, agricultural machinery, fertilizer, pesticides pre- and post- harvest handling, storage, transportation, packaging and labeling.
