With a fillip from the College open Text Books Committee I am confident that my students will be greatly benefited, more so it will be an controlled fission reaction – one is to three and three is to nine and so on and so on—

I am presently having very limited access to  Vocational Agricultural Resources .

With regards and lots of thanks to one and all who contributed for OER
