Research Schemes in Operation

C(a) PP-2 Plan (Ag.) 

Studies on economically important plant diseases and mushroom production technology

Objectives: 

i) Identification and characterization of fungal, bacterial and viral diseases.
ii) Epidemiology and assessment of losses
iii)
Management of crop diseases through cultural, chemical, biological and host resistance
iv) Development and popularization of mushroom production technology

C(a)PP-1 Plan (Ag.)

Promotion of mushroom cultivation as an entrepreneurial activity in Haryana.

i) To prepare commercial mushroom spawn and pasteurized compost for mushroom growers.

ii)  To collect and culture the naturally occurring Ganoderma spp. to conserve the natural bio-resource of this mushroom.

iii)  To standardize the cultivation technology of Ganoderma lucidum

ICAR Scheme: C (b) PP-17 ICAR                                                   

All India Coordinated Research Project on Mushroom  

Objectives:

i) Survey, collection and identification of fleshy fungi in the area of respective coordinating centre for exploitation and cultivation of new species/strains suited to different regions.
ii) Regional adaptability trials for growing the promising strains/ species of different edible fungi
iii) Selection of cheap and locally available agro/industrial wastes for composting, supplementation of substrate and casing.
iv) Standardization of cultivation techniques for optimization of yield of different mushrooms.
v) Survey and surveillance of diseases and pests of mushrooms during different seasons in various regions.
vi) Transfer of proven technology to mushroom growers and to impart training on mushroom cultivation.

Salient Achievements of the research work

i)Regression equations have been developed for the prediction of some of the economically important plant diseases.
ii)Yield loss prediction equations have been developed for few diseases.
iii)
Detection and diagnosis of economically important fungal, bacterial and viral diseases in Haryana.
iv)Resistant sources identified for major diseases.
v)
Studies conducted on ecofriendly management of plant diseases using plant extract and the bioagents.
vi)Developed low cost technology to grow mushroom using various agricultural wastes and eco-friendly methods of compost sterilization.
vii)
Training is being imparted to mushroom growers regularly.
viii)Commercial spawn and pasteurized compost have been made available to the mushroom growers.

ix)The technology for seasonal cultivation of edible mushroom viz., button, oyster and milky mushroom has been standardized
