Current Research Activities

Agricultural Sciences

Microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, virus etc. and plants extract are used as alternative biological control agent instead of chemical insecticides. insecticidal agent. The research involve identification of bacteria from various sample and extraction of certain part of plants, discovery of the insecticidal compounds and observe insecticidal activity against phytopathogens.
