About the Book:
The aim of this book is to kindle the scientific spirit and temper among school children, graduate students, research scholars, scientists, farmers, extension specialists, entrepreneurs and people across the world, which will pave way for new inventions in the field of Science and Agriculture. I am optimistic that the book will be well received and reach a vast pool of eager young minds to gain insights and launch into their own initiative of making a difference to the world through their enterprise and inventive minds.
Motivation is the key player for the success quotient of a nation. It is also true for individuals. For a nation to make rapid strides in the path of progress, inventions in science and technology are imperative. Not only is it essential to acknowledge the role of scientists and honour their work, but motivating young students and aspiring research scholars is the need of the hour. I was fortunate enough to be motivated by my parents, my family members, my teachers and researchers across the world throughout my research career. This constant motivation gave me the drive to make inventions in the field of agricultural science and conceive this book not only to document these inventions and such that advancements in these can happen over time, but also because it would serve to inspire young minds with fertile imagination to take up the task of finding lasting solutions to myriad such problems by making discoveries and inventions.
