Unique Features and Our Reviews
Its an irony that in spite of India being a primarily agrarian society, there are very few people who plan to initiate in this ecosystem.
The first step towards it is to build an in depth knowledge base and create a platform for like minded people to share knowledge and interact. Agropedia an initiative by IIT Kanpur students is a great step forward.
There is definite need to get it highlighted through some form of media so that it scales up soon.
