Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology is located at Udaipur and it is the second agricultural university in the whole state of Rajasthan. The university was established on the 1st of November 1999 with the name of Agricultural University, Udaipur by getting separated from Rajasthan Agricultural University by a state government act. This division of Rajasthan Agricultural University was done mainly for the purpose of meeting the wide physiographic variation of crops in the different areas of the state.
