  1. Though Agriculture is the back bone of our country,the sector is highly neglected.So also the Agricultural graduates,post graduates & extension workers & farmers who toil hard to feed the country.What ever high profile/paid positions r there,all grabbed by research people who r very few.The people toiling hard get nothing.
    This is Govt.Agril job scenario.
    What to tell about farmers ?
