In view of the social and educational development of farming and rural community, established Sadguru Udyog Samuh in 1985 and in 2001 established the Shri Sant Gajanan Maharaj Bigarsheti Patsanstha. Farming population has major contribution in rural area and Animal Husbandry is major subsidiary enterprises of farmers so started Diploma course in Animal husbandry and Dairy technology under Nagpur University in the year 2002 and Agricultural Polytechnic School in the year 2004.

School dropout students at rural area are high as compare to urban area so for them started Yashwanrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University’s Agricultural Education Centre at Sadguru College of Agriculture, Mirajgaon in the year 2012 and in 2015-16 established Shri Sant Gajanan Maharaj Junior College at Mirajgaon.

Modern agriculture practices are increasingly turning out to be knowledge based systems. India does require agriculture education at all levels so that our farmers are better equipped to handle the challenges of globalization with many MNCs have forayed into the segment with dozens of agro-products with better packaging and high decibel marketing; subsequently this has resulted as a threat to Indian farmers who lack professional expertise to deal with these issues. Hence the need of the hour is to give agricultural education a high priority. Despite rapid strides by the agriculture sector, still there exist many grey areas which require immediate attention. Keeping into account of the fact that increased productivity and production must be the sole objective of agricultural research, our scientific community is leaving no stone unturned for bringing about paradigm changes in agriculture education in the country. Shri Sant Gajanan Maharaj Pratishtan has decided to start Agriculture and Agricultural Allied Colleges to produce practicing agriculture scientists, engineers and marketing proffesionals etc. To provide high class learning and teaching environment to Students and Teachers, comparable to the best of any urban area to the rural masses and empowering them through advanced Agricultural Education
Many of our past students are holding prestigious positions in the reputed organisations within the country and abroad.
