Research Interests

The main focus on our research work is development of agro-technologies for non-traditional economically important medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) by introduction, domestication, crop geometry and nutrient management, aiming at economic utilization of partially reclaimed sodic lands. Our emphasis includes designing and perfecting new cropping systems of MAPs. Different activities to achieve these objectives involve germplasm collection from different afro-climatic conditions, their ex-situ conservation, selection of elite material with good growth and yield attributes, development of their propagation for large scale multiplication and conducting field experiments for development of agro-techniques in different cropping systems including inter-cropping with trees and other economic crops. Under CSIR-800 mission and rural development initiative of CSIR, the outreach efforts towards popularizing CSIR-NBRI Green Technologies for economic upliftment of rural population are being undertaken through outreach programmes.

Research Details

The soil of NBRI Farm sites belongs to Sodic Wastelands category, which has been subjected to various degrees of reclamation during the last few decades and put to diversified land use systems under different activities related to R&D projects and economic land utilization. The long term field experiments on sustainable development of sodic lands through biological means cover the maximum land area of the sites, mainly accommodating Man-made Forest, Tree Gene Bank of Indo-Gangetic Plains, Field Gene Banks of Medicinal & Aromatic Plants, Comparative Performance Evaluation Trials on various trees and shrubs in reclamation of sodic wastelands etc. The agro-technology and cropping systems research includes development of cropping systems with appropriate agro-technology for organic cultivation and conservation of medicinal and other economic plants, economically utilizing partially reclaimed sodic lands.

The current research includes following activities:

  • Evaluation of non-traditional economic plants for sodic soil
  • Standardization of agro-technology for sustainable utilization of sodic wastelands
  • Providing R & D support services by conservation and enrichment of various germplasm, plant propagation
  • Outreach programmes/ Extension activities
