  Biopesticides

Tree PALH is a biopesticide product which has been developed as an alternative to chemical pesticides for the management of insect pests of forestry importance. Use of Hydnocarpic acid as biopesticide is first of its kind and combination with neem oil and essential oil of Lantana is a new approach.

  Tree Rich Biobooster- An alternate potting mixture for plant production.

“Tree Rich Biobooster” is a comprehensive potting mixture provides requisite nutrients and protects plants from pest and diseases. It is made from coconut fiber waste duly decomposed and enriched with all nutrients through various beneficial microbes.

  ArborEasyTM DNA Isolation Kit

ArborEasy® DNA isolation kit is a spin column based genomic DNA isolation kit. ArborEasy® is a registered trademark.  The isolation Kit provides an indigenous, nonbio-hazardous, low cost pin column based system for isolation of plant genomic DNA from wide range of tissue types, specifically tree tissues.  
 

  Commercialization of Clones of Casuarinas and Eucalyptus

Institute of Forest Genetics and Tree Breeding (IFGTB), is working on genetic improvement of Eucalyptus, Casuarina, Acacias and fast growing native tree species.  This targeted research is carried out in close collaboration with the Paper industries and farmers to meet the raw material demand and increase the farm income. 

  Conservation and Species Restoration of Critically Endangered Medicinal Plant

Commiphora wightii (Arn.) Bhandari, commonly known as guggal, is a medicinally important desert species of the family burseraceae. It is a well known for its valuable active principle found in its oleo-gum-resin (guggulsterone E and Z), which are used in drugs preparation for lowering the cholesterol level in human body.

  TFRI Tricho cards

Fresh eggs of rice moth, Corcyra cephalonica (Stainton) (Lepidptera : Pyralidae) were pasted on paper cards and hanged in teak forests for 2-3 days during last week of June in Udaipur (compartment No. 298 RF), Kalpi Forest Range, Mandla Forest Division, MP. 

  Management of white grubs in teak nurseries

Teak (Tectona grandis) is one of the major forest timber tree species in central Indian states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Orissa. In central India, the preferred planting material is root-shoot rather than teak seedlings grown in root trainers. 

  Production and distribution of biofertilizers of microbial origin

Bio-fertilizers or microbial inoculants are preparations containing live or latent cells of efficient strains of nitrogen fixing, mineral solubilizing, or cellulolytic microbes used for application to seed, soil or composting areas to augment the extent of availability of nutrients to plants. Biofertilizer has been extensively applied and accepted worldwide in agricultural crops, however, its application in forest tree species remains restricted. 

  Seed Technology of Juniperus polycarpos (Himalayan Pencil Cedar)

Juniperus polycarpos C. Koch is an important indigenous conifer of North-Western Himalayan Region, commonly known as “Himalayan Pencil Cedar”. The seeds of this species have dormancy which affects its germination. Technology for breaking seed dormancy has been developed at HFRI during last 5 years.

  Macro-proliferation technique for Kutki Multiplication

Picrorhiza kurrooa, Royle ex Benth. commonly known as Kutki is an important temperate medicinal plant found in western Himalayas, which has a great potential for commercial cultivation in higher temperate regions (above 2700 mts.).

  Macro-proliferation technique for Mushakbala Multiplication

Valeriana jatamansi, Jones commonly known as Mushakbala is an important temperate medicinal plant species found in western Himalayas and possesses great potential for commercial cultivation. The species can be easily grown by seeds but the vegetative propagation has scientific advantage over sexual propagation

  Integrated Pest Management of Deodar Defoliator (Ectropis deodarae Prout)

Deodar (Cedrus deodara), one of the most valuable and dominant conifer species of the North-western Himalaya at certain intervals gets affected by a defoliator, Ectropis deodarae Prout, (Lepidoptera: Geometridae). This key pest seriously affects the younger crops in deodar forests.

  Intercropping of temperate medicinal plants with horticultural plantation

The interspaces in the orchards of high hill temperate region can be better utilized and economic benefit from the orchards can be enhanced by intercropping selected commercially important medicinal plants.
