         Green Manuring in rice based cropping system

  • Development and Dissemination of Zinc Enriched Rice Nurseries: Zinc Sulphate (33%) application @ 25-30 kg/acre to rice nursery rather than transplanted rice crop saved not only the fertilizer expenditure but also the labour cost for zinc application
  • Identification of Predators for Insect Pest Management in Rice – Wheat ecosystem: Twenty three species of predators were recorded from rice-wheat ecosystem for biological control of rice insect pests.
  • Development of rope dragging technology for leaf folder management: Kerosene oil soaked rope dragging on the rice crop helped manage leaf folder ( Cnaphalocrosismedinalis)
