BIO-SCIENCES

The major thrust of the division is to evaluate the different pesticide formulations developed by this institute for their commercial viability, as in house services, through well equipped bio-assay laboratory, green house/glass house and experimental field trials.

Additionally the division is also actively engaged in developing registration data packages of various pesticides as per Central Insecticide Board/Registration Committee protocols for the pesticide industry for their new formulations through sponsored projects. The division is recognized by Central Insecticide Board/Registration Committee for generation of data on bio-efficacy, phytotoxicity, phytotonicity, compatibility, effect of pesticides on natural enemies of pests and residual aspects of pesticides.

This Division has so far successfully generated registration data for different pesticide formulations on various crops as well as for house hold insects through sponsored projects by pesticide industries.
