Reshaping Agriculture Using the Nuclear Techniques: The Pakistan Case
Abstract: The field of nuclear agriculture is introduced very briefly. Nuclear agriculture research/development system in Pakistan is described highlighting the achievements of the system partners. Description and discussion are generalized in concluding remarks at the end of the article. This article is an experimental guide for a developing nuclear agriculture system.
