Achievements and Findings

  • A field study was conducted for three years from 1996 to 1999 at ARSS Tabiji, Ajmer. Title Production Potential and Economic of Bajra and Wheat base of cropping system and found that Kharif Onion followed by Wheat gave maximum return followed by Kharif Guar and Rabi Onion.
  • A field studies were conducted on effect of sulphydryl compound DTT, DTNB, TGA, TU and their combination under fully irrigated condition and limited irrigation condition reveals that foliar spray of thioglucollic acid (100ppm) and Thio-urea (100 ppm) were cost effective in both the environment.
  • In Kharif season planting of onion crops at 45cms distance through ridges found suitable than flate planting (2001).
  • In Kharif season, planting of blub on 15th July found significantly superior over late planting (2002).
  • For Kharif onion crop ridges are made 45cms apart and planting of set on 10cms apart on the ridges.
  • For sorghum cultivation in Ajmer region, varieties CSV-15, CSV-17, SPV-96 and SPV-1430 were found suitable over local variety (Deshi).
  • Two foliar spray of 1000 ppm thiourea one at knee height stage and second at 20 day later found suitable for increasing grain as well as fodder yield of Sorghum (2006).
  • Application of 25kg. Zinc sulphate/ha before sowing gave significantly higher bulk yield of onion (2002).
  • Spray of 30 ppm GA-3 or 50 ppm NAA at 40 and 60 DAY produce significantly higher bulk yield of onion.
  • To get higher bulk yield in Rabi Onion Seeding are dipped in 40 ppm solution of GA-3 or 25 ppm solution for NAA for 72 hours and then transplanting in the field (2004).
  • For seed production of onion variety RO-1, 120 Kg. N/ha was recommended along with 30cm row spacking.
  • A field experiment was conducted at ARSS Tabiji on the effect of foliar spray of sulphydryl compound on carbon practitioner, productivity and water use efficient of wheat under limited & water sufficient environment. Results reveals that two foliar spray of 100 ppm TGA or 500 ppm TU gave significant higher grain yield.
  • Genetic expression of yield ability in wheat under sulphydryl enriched biophysio-environment.
  • A field experiment conducted during Rabi 2003-2006 on seed soaking with 500 ppm TU, 50 ppm TGA and 10 ppm DTT data reveals that Wheat seed treated with 50 ppm TGA gave significantly higher grain yield followed by 500 ppm TU. Among varieties tested is no significant difference.
  • A field experiment conducted during Rabi 2003-2006 on foliar spray of sulphydryl 500 ppm TU, 50 ppm TGA and 10 ppm DTT data reveals that one foliar spray of 50 ppm, TGA gave significant higher grain yield followed by 500 ppm TU.
  • A field experiment conducted during Rabi 2003-2006 on soil application of 5, 10 and 20kg. thiourea before souring the experiment data show that no significant difference was observed in different level of Thiourea soil application.

Crop Improvement

  • Contribution as co-operator in the development of Varieties:
  • As per the mandate of research substation, Tabiji, Ajmer is carrying-out testing and verification function of different crop projects. As such I am associated with & involved in the respective crop project to meet the research targets, and also as per the pre-requisite for the incorporation of any recommendations or for release of crop varieties made by concerning crop scientist. To meet out the mandatory targets, experiments are being conducted at this research sub-station. The information thus generated from these experiments are taken into account before, incorporating the recommendation in the package of practices of Zone III-a or for release of the variety. The ancillary data and other related data are being supplied for crop trials.
  • I was associated with various crop projects, such as AICRIP on Pearl Millet, Guar, Cotton, Cowpea and Moong in Kharif season and similarly in Rabi season, my association is with AICRIP on wheat , barley, chickpea, spices and Regional Scheme of Taramira.
