  • I am happy that quality articles are presented as blogs and can vouch that many of the blogs are far better than those appearing in the research journals. Though Dr P S SIvakumar is not known to me personally, his name is farmiliar to me through your blogs. Thanks for publishing such blogs for the sake of our young researchers. Dr Sivakumars blog is very informative and in fact can give a lot of insights to the youngsters. I hope that he will also cover action research and translational research. Recently, I came across an interesting article on wheat value chain based on translational research that can be used by our extension researchers. Likewise, there are many articles which should be made familiar to the students.A good text book on Research Methodology for Extension Scientists is the need of the houriv
