ARS, Navgaon

AGRICULTURE RESEARCH STATION: NAVGAON, ALWAR
             (SKN AGRICULTURE UNIVERSITY, JOBNER)

        

Years of establishment: Late fifties

INTRODUCTION

Ten agro-climatic zones have been classified to characterize climatic distribution in Rajasthan. The Flood Prone Eastern Plain Zone III b lies at the extreme NE corner between 7607' - 2802'     N latitude, comprising all tehsils of Alwar, Bharatpur, Dholpur, Karauli and Sawai Madhopur districts except tehsils of Khandar, Chouth ka Barwara, Malarna Dungar and Sawai Madhopur. Average rainfall of the zone is about 500 mm (Alwar district) to 650 mm in south eastern part and the soils are aridisols. Although recurrent floods occur in rainy season in about 5% of the area, yet it is one of the most potential areas in Rajasthan so far as agricultural production and productivity is concerned.

 

The centre was established by the State Department of Agriculture as a Seed Multiplication Farm in late fifties. The main objective was to multiply foundation and certified seeds of principal crops of the area. Research scheme on oilseeds and pulses (Non-Plan) was sanctioned in 1974-75 and the work of varietal screening and testing was initiated in Rapeseed-Mustard. In 1976, with the transfer of agricultural research to the university from state department of agriculture, the centre became Agricultural Research Sub Station, a constituent unit of the then Sukhadia University, Udaipur and later elevated to main station (Agricultural Research Station) with lead research functions on pulses and oilseeds. In 1981, a project on Intensification of Research and Training on Oilseeds and Pulses was sanctioned by ICAR to work out agronomic practices and rural social activities related to rapeseed - mustard and pulse crops. At this juncture NARP came into existence with an objective of strengthening the research capabilities of the station for solving location specific problems. The mandate of research was specified.  In 1984, All India Coordinated Research Project on Oilseeds Improvement (R&M) was transferred from ARS, Durgapura, Jaipur to ARS, Navgaon, Alwar with the main responsibility of improvement of Rapeseed-Mustard group of crops in the state. A sub unit of the station was subsequently established at Kumher (Bharatpur) as Agriculture Research Sub Station in 1989, however, the sub station became operative only in 1992 after completion of the formalities of acquisition of land allotted to it by the state government.

Achievements, recommendations and findings
ZREAC/III b/21-22/Rb-8: Recommendations for inclusion in package of practices for Rabi, 2021-22

  1. Application of 75% RDF (60:30:30 Kg. NPK) + Foliar Spray of NPK 19:19:19 @2% at 50 days after sowing  significantly  increase the mustard yield over control.
  2. Seed treatment with T. Viride+ Fluorescence@ 3 gm. each/Kg Seed + Soil application of  these bioajents @2.5 kg each /ha with FYM has found most economical and effective against root rot management in gram.
  3. Spray of Azoxystrobin 23% SC @ 1.0 ml/ ltr. water was found most effective against alternaria  blight in mustard
  4. Basal Application of RDF   (80:40:40 Kg. NPK + 25 Kg. ZnSo4 )  + 1 Kg. Borax significantly  increase the mustard yield  in Boron  deficit soil.
  5. Spray of Tebuconazole 25.9 %EC @ 1.0 ml /ltr was also found effective against alternaria blight in mustard.
  6. Seed treatment with carboxin 37.5 % + Thiram 37.5 % @ 2 gm / kg seed + soil  application of T. harzianum @ 5 kg/ ha with FYM was found effective  against root rot  management  in gram
