Our Delhi Letter

ALONG WITH improved seeds, fertilizers occupy a crucial position in Subramaniam's new strategy of development for making the country self sufficient in food at the end of the Fourth plan. An allout effort was being made so far to attract foreign firms to set up fertilizer production in India and extensive concessions have been offered to them.
