About Journal:

Lot of research efforts for meeting requirements of the farmers for sustaining their livelihood security, reducing malnutrition and taming global warming are being carried out world over. A number of institutions including ICAR based institutes, State & Central agricultural Universities and many NGOs are involved in developing need based and location specific technologies. However, still large gaps persist on technology benefits between research farms and actual farm fields. The technologies sometimes, are sophisticated and farmers are under skilled. The matching of both is needed. In other words required research technologies are still at large of the farmers. Even though, large number of extension agencies are available in India, yet results on real farms are not reaching appreciably. In view of this, present magazine is being brought out.
