  • Use of Modern Techniques for Salt Tolerance Studies

    By : Categories : Programmes Comment: Comments Off on Use of Modern Techniques for Salt Tolerance Studies

    Crop improvement strategies based on molecular marker techniques and biotechnology can be used in conjunction with breeding efforts for this purpose. DNA markers enhance the recovery rate of isogenic recurrent genome after hybridization and facilitate introgression of quantitative trait loci (QTL) necessary to increase stress tolerance. Molecular marker techniques were used to transfer alleles of […]

  • Sustainable/Profitable Farming Systems for Saline wastelands

    By : Categories : Programmes Comment: Comments Off on Sustainable/Profitable Farming Systems for Saline wastelands

    Under this programe we are searching for the opportunities to develop, test and introduce/demonstrate all possibilities of land use systems for salt-affected landscapes that are sustainable, profitable and have positive environment impacts. This research aims at providing productive options for managing the increasingly large areas that have and will become salty over the next years. […]

  • Agroforestry- as viable option for waste saline land and water resources

    By : Categories : Programmes Comment: Comments Off on Agroforestry- as viable option for waste saline land and water resources

    The importance of this program is to produce forestry products from marginal low rainfall areas where agricultural field crops have become unproductive because of salinization processes. Number of woody and some multipurpose tree spp. were compared for performance under saline/saline-sodic conditions. Survival, growth and biomass production of many species indicated a great success.

  • New and improved Grasses, Shrubs and other fodder species

    By : Categories : Programmes Comment: Comments Off on New and improved Grasses, Shrubs and other fodder species

    Another option for salt-affected soils is growing such plants that are also capable of being converted, by livestock, into meat wool and other livestock products. Some of these options have been described by many scientists. The main objective of this programme is to develop a rapid screening for large numbers of available fodder plants at […]

  • Development of Salt Tolerant Field crops

    By : Categories : Programmes Comment: Comments Off on Development of Salt Tolerant Field crops

    The main objective of this programme is to identify and select field crops that contribute to improved productivity and profitability of saline lands. Selection and development of crop genotypes are the basic components of Saline Agriculture. A number of green house and field experiments were conducted and species suitable for different types of salt affected […]
