Advisor Emeritus & Reports
Our Advisor Emeritus, Partha Das Gupta, has served Indian agriculture for well over 50 years. His contributions include Syngenta Foundation projects, but go far beyond. Since his retirement from our organization, Partha continues to publish and teach. Here, for example, are a 2016 seminar paper on sustainability in smallholder farming and a presentation to the Indian Youth Science Congress related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and ‘Climate Action’. His 2017 book on "Commercial Agriculture by Indian Smallholders" has attracted a series of favorable reviews. Here's what the Asian Biotechnology Development Review wrote in July.
The book's ISBN are 978-81-87374-84-8 (PB), 978-81-87374-85-5 (HB), 978-81-87374-86-2 eB. For order inquiries, please contact the publishers.
