Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyala, Mohanpur,
in Agriculture, then obtained M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree in
Soil Science & Ag. Chemistry from IARI,
. Joined West Bengal Agricultural Services as Agricultural
Development Officer (ADO) and served for six months at Block level.
Most significant research achievements:
Penicillium pinophilum with potassium feldspar resulted much greater improvement
in plant growth, photosynthetic activity, chlorophyll content, availability of soil
K and P and their uptake.
Spraying of CaCl2 @ 1.5% along with
OHM schedule could reduce bacterial blight disease incidence by 39.92% and at the
same time resulted 102.34% increase in healthy fruit production per plant.
A microbial consortium comprising of
Azospirillum brasilense, Pseudomonas fluorescens,
pink pigmented facultative methylotrophs (PPFM),
Pseudomonas striata and Penicillium pinophilum
has been proves to be superior in promoting plant growth and nutrient availability
in soil and their uptake.
Developing consortia of efficient microbial
strains and their use in integrated nutrient management programme of pomegranate
for better crop yield and fruit quality.
Develop management strategy of micronutrient
particularly (Zn and Mn) to the plant or use of amendments or microorganisms for
enhancing the bioavailability of micronutrients to plants so that the sustainability
of production will be ensured.
Obtained editorial ship of the International
