I, Vanmathi V done my M. Sc (Hort) Fruit Science in HC & RI, TNAU, Coimbatore. With immense pleasure, I share my experience here. The articulated and intelligent faculty helped us to widen our subject knowledge especially the recent cultivation and breeding aspects. The well-maintained orchard, well equipped analytical, molecular and tissue culture laboratory with hi-tech equipments and instruments provided an excellent academic environment to carry out the research work successfully. The practical experience gained during this program was extraordinary. My special, profound and grateful thanks to our beloved academic coordinator Dr. C.
