Educational environment refers to the physical, social, biological and artificial surroundings provided by the agricultural college so as to fulfill requirements of the students during their B.Sc. Agri. Degree. The study was undertaken to know the status of educational environment in affiliated agricultural colleges in comparison with constituent agricultural colleges from the state of Maharashtra. An educational environment was measured with the help of a three-point continuum scale developed by Tarde (2002) and Thoke (2011) with some additions. It was observed that, two third of affiliated agricultural colleges were having ‘fair’ educational environment followed. As regards to the constituent agricultural colleges, the majority of constituent agricultural colleges were having ‘fair’ educational environment. There was no constituent college in the category of ‘poor’ educational environment. Correlation analysis showed that, there was a positive association between educational environment and overall performance of the both types of agricultural colleges. However, the difference between educational environment of affiliated and constituent colleges was found to be non-significant.
