There are many institutes in Pakistan which offer this course like University of Agriculture in Peshawar.
The scope of Agronomy for Agricultural University of Faisalabad is as follows:
Getting experience by working on farms before studying at university level
Studying about soil management, fertilizers and other elements
Discussing about plant life cycle

The plant life cycle is the time that it takes for a plant to grow and become an adult. A lot of plants need two years to reach maturity, but some plants can grow faster and are considered as annuals. Annual plants only need one year to mature.
Synthetic fertilizers are used to produce more food in less time. It is recommended that you use synthetic fertilizers because they help your crops grow faster.
It is an applied science that deals with the study of agricultural production. The field of agronomy is a branch of agricultural sciences. Universities around the world offer courses in agronomy, such as the Agronomy Department of the University of Faisalabad. The department offers a variety of courses to students, such as soil management, fertilizers and other elements, plant life cycle and soil management. Students are required to take a variety of core courses before they can take elective courses in agronomy.
