To strengthen teaching, research & extension activities in agriculture & allied sciences the first & foremost tool is language. H.A.U. being an agricultural university gives impetus to these activities. Initially, the college had separate departments for both the languages i.e.:

  1. Department of English  & Foreign Languages. 
  2. Department of Hindi  & Haryanvi Culture. 

In 2002, these two departments were merged into one i.e. Department of Languages & Haryanvi Culture for the further strengthening of teaching of both the languages i.e.  English  &Hindi. The Department of LHC is a purely teaching department. It caters to the needs of all the constituent colleges of the University by teaching U.G. and P.G. courses. The Department offers one course of Hindi for the students from foreign countries. The department offers two PG diploma courses i.e. Communication Skills in English and English-Hindi Translation. 

The department is having a very talented and efficient faculty that consists of one Professors, two Assoc. Professors and two Assistant Professors. With a special focus on Communication Skills in the field of agriculture, the students are being familiarised with the aspects of Language and Literature. Besides, the faculty is also dedicated in preparing the students for their better career through mock interview, group discussion, etc.

Infrastructural Development

  • The department has a Botanical Garden spread over an area of 10.5 acres with rich biodiversity. The department has done pioneering work in conserving the indigenour local species of plant and also introduction of exotic specis (approximately 600) from other places. Various native and exotic trees, shurbs, herbs, climbers, aquatic plants, cacti and succulents have been collected and maintained for imparting knowledge to our students as well as related scientists. Flower shows are organized from time to time.
  • The department has 9 screening houses near the college building.
  • The department has developed 20 salinity micro plots to determine phyto-remediating potential of halophytic flora and 24 lysimeter have been installed in field to determine the transpirational potential of trees having importannce in bio-drainage.
  • Experimental farms spread over 25 acres have been developed to evaluate bio-drainage potential of trees to improve waterlogged soils.

Package and Practices

system having Eucalyptus tereticornis as a strip plantation should be established on the water logged soils. In this model north to south field boundary is converted into 2.6 m wide and 45 cm high raised bund on which two rows of trees can be planted. The intervening space is left for the crops with minimum of shade effect due to the north-south direction of bunds� initiated by Drs. O.P. Toky, Rajiv Angrish and J.C. Kaushik included in the HAU Package of Practices.
