One of the Oldest Diploma Institutes in Tamil Nadu. The idea of starting an agricultural school was conceived in 1954. It became a reality only in 1959, when the farm was equipped with sufficient infrastructures. On Feb 26,1976 the Agricultural training given in the school was recognized by the Government, as an Agricultural demonstration Maestry Course. Efforts continued to make this course into a diploma course. Recognizing our meritorious service in the field of agriculture, department of Tamil Nadu has issued the necessary orders to conduct this two-year diploma course. The Tamil Nadu agricultural university, Coimbatore was pleased to grand recognition and affiliation to Sagayathottam Institute of Agriculture to conduct two-year diploma course from the year 1987-88.
