Research Highlights

Research Highlight-1:

Bamboo Nursery is being raised for the species namely Dendrocalamus hamiltonii, Dendrocalamus strictus, Dendrocalamus hookeri, Bamboosa bamboos, Phyllostachys nigra. In addition a total of 25000 bamboo saplings were sold to different agencies for distribution to farmers.

Research Highlight-2:

Under research project on solid waste management using Termites along with termite diverisity analysis and morphological identification of 11 species of termites in Palampur region, potential of 3 termite species namely Heterotermes gertrudae, H. indicola and Odontotermes bhagwatii in solid waste management was determined by setting in-situ and ex situ experiments using different parameters.
