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

  1. Resouce Conservation Technologies were standardized under mustrd based cropping systems
  1. Weed management protocols were developed for PM-Mustard-mung bean system
  1. Optimized use of available water through adoption of micro irrigation systems (MIS) could support in augmenting the yields.
  1. Sensor based nitrogen (N) application (50% basal+ rest green seeker based) increased maize yield by 14.7% and 7.4%, respectively over 100% basal and 50% basal+ 2 splits (25% each as top-dressing).
