Postharvest technology, plant growth, and development biology, plant pathology, and disease control. Going down the food chain, these are the areas that we lack as nations in terms of food security, rural economics, agric digitization, and precise farming and I think that is the new trend giving the volume of these are areas that we can strongly learn to modernize agriculture."
