Feed back from TNAU, NRCB and Farmers

Dear readers,

You are aware that this blog carries an exhaustive load of details regarding micro-nutrient deficiencies in Banana and their remedies.

On cross verification with other websites it was found that even the most trusted websites carry major flaws.

TNAU Agritech portal is no exception and the mistakes pointed out by this blogger was corrected in their website immediately (within 12 hours). 

The above discussed subject along with the disputed pictures were sent to National Research Centre for Banana, Trichy also for re-confirmation at their end. Fast came the reply to our surprise.

 'KUDOS' to TNAU and NRCB on behalf of farming community for their quick response.

Our letter and the response from both TNAU and NRCB is given here for record:
Dear Mr. Sankar,

We accept the link was a mistake and rectified immediately,
We will welcome constructive suggestion to improve on,
With kind and warm regards

Respected sir,
I regret to note some major flaws in your Agritech portal in the link:
In the above link, some pictures are published under the heading ‘Deficiency symptoms of Banana’.  These pictures are copied from NRCB website
1.    Mistake 1: The picture shown as P deficiency is actually S deficiency as per NRCB website link:
2.    Mistake 2: The picture shown as Mn deficiency is actually Mg deficiency as per NRCB website link:
3.    Mistake 3: The picture shown as S deficiency has two different pictures combined in to one picture. In actual, the upper picture shows Zn deficiency and the lower one depicts S deficiency as per NRCB
Please correct the mistakes immediately which might have occurred by oversight at your end.
Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,
A.Vishnu Sankar
