I had the opportunity today to interact with the participants called for a training programme on SAS. The scientists from different parts of the country have been immensely benefited by the various training programmes organized by IASRI. This programme was specially for the agro-forestry programme and proved to be very useful. The innovative approach and personal touch has been unique at this Institute and served the NARS System in an effective manner. The facilities are quite good and updated regularly. I wish all success for this Institute.

NRCAF has explored and utilized the strength of IASRI for the benefit of its scientists and also partners of NARS. We have been benefited both at NRCAF & AICRP on AF for strengthening the knowledge base and also for designing and implementing the experiments on fields. The training programme on SAS for the AICRP on AF has benefited the scientists immensely as per the feedback and I am sure they will be using it for analysis of the AF experimental data. I am definitely convinced that the program/software made available through IASRI & NAIP has been a very positive step in the right direction. I am thankful to the Director & Dr. Parsad for this proactive approach. NRCAF will be in touch for the future program.

I was one of the trainees of the training programme on Data Analysis using SAS... during 21st Feb to 26th Feb,2011. ... really delighted to have this training on SAS. … thrilled to have this hand on training … earlier communicated my two of my research papers to Euphytica , a leading journal on Plant breeding, the data were to be analysed in SAS. I got it analysed from one of my lab mates from Jack Staub’s Laboratory, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA … Then both of my papers were published in Euphytica (details mentioned below) with slight modifications.... This story I wanted to share with you because the analysing power of SAS can only be measured when we had the problem of publishing the papers in good journals of high impact factor.

This is the first project at IASRI at this large scale, which makes connections with all NARS Institutions. This was required long back by IASRI and this is the project which connects all NARS institutions to IASRI and from this project, we have learnt many things. I was also fortunately a part of many contract preparation committees and we learnt many things, just like how to make a tender, how to process the case and how to follow the procedures of NAIP and at least I am greatly benefited by this project. JMP Genomics and all other analysis specially one analysis I would like to quote here that in 2005 we had conducted a large scale survey using a complex sampling design for estimation of harvest and post harvest losses in which we have covered 120 districts and studied designs for 25 commodities together. For the data analysis of that particular project, which was very-very difficult task otherwise, we have used this software very extensively. After that also we are using this software extensively, specially, for representing and now the project is also introduced by same Ministry of Food and Processing and here presently we are in the process of collection of data there also we are using this. The power of SAS is very good and at least, I am happy that this is now being understood by the ICAR and almost all the institutions of NARS have now been using SAS. This is very powerful and further to this some of the components which have not been procured under this particular consortia, we made a proposal for procuring under NABG project and this is under process and very soon will implement the whole software on the Grid environment (HPC Environment). There you can do lot of data Mining and data churning including Text Mining and data warehouse building. All those components we are in the process of procurement and that makes the whole system complete and more powerful as compared to today.
