I do not have agriculture as my optional Sir please tell me which book to cover which would be important
Good series sir jee....keep making it but a suggestion is that - keep lucid illustrations in slides so that it becomes more easy to remember concepts...
Thanks a lot, maps& pictorials can be added for better understanding and long-term retaining.
Great course. Would have been even better,if visuals and maps were added to supplement the explanation of topics.
