This is the final report on the assistance to agricultural research, education, and extension organization given by The Ohio State University (OSU) to the development of the University of Udaipur in the State of Rajasthan, India. The preliminary program of 1955-1964 consisted of assigning OSU faculty members to India, providing professional training on the OSU campus in agriculture or veterinary medicine for personnel from Indian colleges and government, and furnishing needed library materials and laboratory equipment to India. The second program from November 1964 through September 1972 was specifically to help develop the Rajasthan state university along the pattern of the land-grant institutions in the United States through appropriate Rajasthan statutes and financing, adequate physical plant and staffing, and effective integration of teaching, research, and extension programs relevant to the needs of agriculture in the state. Details of the programs and of the development of the University of Udaipur are presented along with evaluation of accomplishments and recommendations for improvement. (MF)
