Soil Science & Agriculture Chemistry Research
- The research work was initiated on the jaggery preparation from sugarcane juice in the year 1976 –77 to solve the problems of jaggery making and to standardise the method of jaggery making. On the basis of previous research work an Ad-hoc scheme was sanctioned during thre year 1989- 90 by ICAR, New Delhi for Preparation and storage techniqes in jaggery .After successfully completion of research secheme the findings on preparation of jaggery ( standardization for pH, temperature and clarificants ) and storage techniques of jaggery blocks were made for improving the jaggery quality.
- In addition to the regular teaching programme, the teachers are also conducting research on the problems faced by the farmers and feed back received from different Agril. Extension agencies. So far this department has planned to initiate the research activity on silicon nutrition to Paddy .
- 20,000 soil samples were analysed for different parameters and fertilizer recommendation were given to the farmers through RAWE since 1990 .
- Experiential Learning Programme on “ Soil and water clinic “ has been started since 2010 for the student of VIII th semester of B.Sc.(Agri .)
The silent features of resarch carried out by this section are as under.
