GCP Subprogramme 2 Leader Rajeev Varshney has been elected as Fellow of the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences (NAAS), India. The highly prestigious Indian Academy, which focuses on the broad field of agricultural sciences, was established to provide a forum for agricultural scientists to share views and knowledge on agricultural research, education and extension, and to present views of the scientific community as policy inputs to planners and decision-makers at various levels.

Elected Fellows of the Academy are recognised for their contributions to science, and are considered distinguished personalities in the field of agriculture and allied sciences, both from India and abroad. In Rajeev’s case, the award is particularly noteworthy in consideration of his young age, since such fellowships are ordinarily granted to senior scientists.

Please join us in congratulating Rajeev on yet another remarkable achievement!
