p The Postgraduate Institute of Agriculture (PGIA) of the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka was established in June 1975. 

The decision to establish such an Institute was based on the recommendation of a widely representative committee to examine the question of manpower requirements in Agriculture at the higher level to sustain the development effort in Agriculture, identify the priority areas of training and recommend the institutionalized arrangements necessary for the development of Postgraduate education in Agriculture.

p To achieve its goals, the Institute has designed diverse higher degree programmes which are of current importance to Sri Lanka as well to other foreign countries.
The Degree programmes offered by the Institute are: Master of Science (Agriculture), Master of Science(Natural Resource Management and Environmental Economics), Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy.
