Dr. Nita Khandekar on "Recent advances in soybean production technology"

Dr. Nita Khandekar is the Acting Director of ICAR-Indian Institute of Soybean Research in Indore, Madhya Pradesh.  She says India has achieved self sufficiency in food grain, pulses, milk, dairy, poultry, sea food etc., however, the scenario of the edible oil production is grim.
