  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”.
