The reason for selecting Athimugam for establishing the Agricultural College was, Krishnagiri District is basically a backward District both Educationally & Economically and a drought prone area due to failure of seasonal rain. This area is famous for cash crops such as Mango, Tamarind & Horticulture crops and is exporting cut flowers to various parts of the world because of its proximity to Bangalore Air Port. Because of the above facts, the Trust has concluded that this a suitable place to start an Agricultural College so that the College can play a vital role in improving the standard of living of farmers of this area.
