Research Activities

(A) Crop Improvement   :-         

  • Strengthening of genetic resources which include collection evaluation and maintenance of germplasm for making use in breeding programmes.
  • Development of new genetic materials for developing genotypes with high stable yield, better grain quality and resistance various biotic and a biotic stresses.
  • Testing of newly developed genotypes under various categories of trials such as IET, PET, SSVT, LSVT, LHT, CVT etc.
  • Seed multiplication of different varieties on large scale to cater to the need of farmers and various seed producing agencies.
  • Dissemination of the newly developed technology on the farmer’s field though emonstration.

(B) Resource Management   :-

  • To find out optimum date of sowing, time, type and method of fertilization, irrigation and harvesting time of drilled paddy, pigeonpea, chickpea and clusterbean.
  • To study the effect of growth regulator on different crops.
  • To study the effect of integrated nutrient management in different crops.
  • To determine the effect of nitrification inhibitors on different crops.
  • To ascertain the suitable crop sequence based on drilled paddy.
  • To work out the suitable inter cropping system in drilled paddy, pigeonpea.
  • To study the feasibility of organic farming in various crops.

(C) Crop Protection   :-

  • Pest and diseases survey and surveillance of various crops.
  • Development of suitable plant protection schedule for increasing production of different crops like paddy, pulses and oilseed crops.
  • To solve the termite problems in drilled paddy and pulses.
  • To fix the economic threshold level of H. armigera in chickpea.
