Thanks giving

Dear Yaduraju sir and team,

Thanks a lot to you and your team for developing such a module and imparting training to scientists of research institutes and SAUs. As a participant I felt it a most useful site for the research workers like me. Popularisation of the site among the staff and students in various institutions is needed to have more knowledge incorporated in each of the sub themes. Similarly, efforts may be made to include other crops also.

Hope much more new things will be added in the days to come.

With warm regards and best wishes

Dear Dr. Naik,

I, Kiran Yadav on behalf of my whole team am thankful for the appreciation but the real success of Agropedia lies on its users like you. So, we hope that you will contribute to the Agropedia repository and motivate your friends to be a part of it.

Hope to see your posts on Agropedia.

Best wishes !
