Soil Fertility and Chemistry:   

  • Integrated nutrient management (INM)

  • Maximization of fertilizer use efficiency by applying fertilizers based on soil-test values and yield target concept

  • Recycling of waste organic residues into soils

  • Management of acid soils

  • Use of rock phosphates

  • Vermi-composting/Fortification of Vermi-compost

Soil Physics, Conservation and Water Management

  • Strengthening natural water resources

  • Harvesting water from natural sources, its storage and recycling for agricultural purposes

  • In situ rainwater harvesting/ inter-plot water harvesting

  • Irrigation scheduling/pressurized irrigation systems, especially under water deficit conditions

  • In situ soil moisture conservation for rainfed agriculture

  • Evaluation of system of rice intensification (SRI)

  • Integrated watershed development

Soil Microbiology

  • Development of bio-fertilizers

  • Identification/isolation of Rhizobia strains for important leguminous crops of the region

Soil Testing

  • To delineate fertility status of soils in different agro-ecological zones

  • To provide soil testing facilities to farmers/Institutions        

Soil Survey and Land Use Planning

  • To characterize and classify soils in different agro-ecological situations

  • Remote sensing, GIS etc.
