One day Workshop about ‘Usefulness of foldscope in on-field detection of root knot nematode infection’ , for students from farming background had been conducted on 16.07.2019 at Dr.N.G.P. Arts and Science College, Coimbatore-48. Around 35 students from different regions of Tamilnadu were participated in the program.
