Sticking to the syllabus
Many book links are already available in the market however some are obsolete like the principles of seed technology book by PK agrawal whose link to the pdf has been directly given. Please bear in mind apart from these many objective books are available which we do suggest you refer as for example the Dr. Uppal kumar Bhattacharya objective book is a treasure trove of information but do exercise caution and try to remain within the syllabus of the examination.
The syllabus for plant science jrf have already been published we request you to take a copy of this and paste and go line by line.
Previous question papers
Previous question papers for ICAR JRF plant sciences are one of the most important ways to understand the various ways questions are being asked and I will recommend you to check out the previous question papers very diligently. As the new pattern is being implemented one can expect more conceptual-based questions based on statement and inferences and less theoretical questions. You can find a collection of old question papers in this website and also in other. If you have access to the new question papers send them at r[email protected] for publishing.
The best books for ICAR JRF plant science have been mentioned above already however preparing well in advance is something many students fail to keep a cap on. I suggest you start your preparations by the third year of degree programme and start giving mock tests and appear for the exam in third year if possible to assess your position and how well you can answer these questions.
