Agricultural Informatics is an applied science dedicated in the advancement of the agricultural and allied areas with the help of Information Technology and Computing. The field is interdisciplinary in nature and helps in various pre-production and post-production activities. Agricultural Informatics has gradually become a field of study, and many countries have started offering various degrees on Agricultural Informatics and allied areas. Technologies viz. Database, Web Technologies, Networking, Multimedia, and Software, are widely used in Agricultural Informatics practice. Most of the programs of Agricultural Informatics are at Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral level only, only a few are offered as post-doctoral research opportunity as Post Doctoral Fellow. However, there is a potentiality in offering another emerging, higher qualification program known as Post Doctoral Certificate Program. The Post Doctoral Certificate Program is academic in nature. Few universities of the United States and the United Kingdom offering this degree, hence there is a potentiality to offer Post Doctoral Certificate in Agricultural Informatics.
