Project/ programme carried out:

  • Utilization of Syngenic lines for improvement of shell weight and survival in silkworm, Bombyx mori. L. (1998-2004)

  • Introgression of higher shell weight, higher survival character/gene through the development of multivoltine and bivoltine cogenic breeds and identification
    of biochemical marker in silkworm, Bombyx mori. L. (2002-05)

  • Institute Village Linkage Programme (IVLP). (2007-13)

  • Validation trial of the Ready Reckoner of sulphur fertilizer application for obtaining targeted yields of mulberry. (2010-12)
