Patent / Technologies / Methodologies / System etc. (Upto Five) :

  1. Integrated crop management (ICM) / conservation agriculture (CA) / precision nutrient management / direct seeded rice (DSR) - CA-based ICM practices in DSR improved the soil carbon dynamics, crop yields, farm profits, besides water savings.
  1. Ferti-fortification enhances the nutrient use efficiency (NUE) in cereals - evaluated the effects of coated urea materials on NUE of rice, wheat and corn, and input-cost relationships.
  1. Microbial inoculants/consortium for improving yields and rhizospheric communities; The hidden half (root system) - studied root-shoot behavior of different genotypes in cereals.
  1. Contributed significantly in the AICRP maize program at IARI centre; evaluated pre-released materials (~200 entries) of different maturity groups (full, medium, early and extra-early maize) against varying planting density and nutrients levels.
  1. Dissemination of climate-resilient technologies toenhance, adaptive capacity, productivity and profitability - Developed and validated drought contingency plan, and large scale OFT’s were conducted {~360 fieldtrials} to enhance RUE and farm–profits.
