The Agro-Know blog started by the end of 2013, after a discussion I had with Nikos; I have already shared some parts of the story here and we have already celebrated the 100th one (but we missed the 200th in the meantime…). Today we are celebrating the 300th post on the Agro-Know blog!
Yes, sometime we feel like the Spartans :-)
