Toppers says...

“In a nutshell , Being a technical subject, it is very much predictable unlike subjects from humanities. Only vastness is the issue but it can be tackled by revision and writing practice. Biggest challenge is to write more points in an answer in given time. The answer should be at your fingertips and it comes only after revision and writing practice. So, revise more and write more”

As there is no good test series for agriculture in the market, you can rely upon previous year question papers or Krushna Bhokare Sir’s online test series is better than any institutions test series. It will help you in practicing as many questions and completing the whole syllabus also.”
