Aeroponics

Aeroponics is the process of growing plant in the air, in a mist environment, without soil and any pesticides. The main goal is to use less water, to allow the plants to grow faster and during the whole year. This technique could allow agriculture to become more environmental friendly and in the future be able to sustain the needs of a growing population. VA intern Hujo Scheleicher worked and developed first prototype of this system. More details about this system available here:...

TRICODERMA VIRIDAE STREAKING ON PDA PLATE

In ‘Vigyan Ashram’s ‘ microbiology lab, Tricoderma viridae is multiplied, made powder of it, packed and sold to the Farmers & also used by the agriculture department students within the Vigyan Ashram. Tricoderma is an very effective bio control agent for the crops. Hence it is in demand among Farmers, Gardeners and all people involved in agricultural Section. In order to produce Tricoderma Powder, first we have to inoculate Tricoderma on the sterile substrate, allow it to multiply on it. For inoculation we require pure Tricoderma viridae strain. When we plated the Tricoderma powder which was made in Ashram on PDA; it was observed that along with Greenish growth of Tricoderma viridae, some unwanted growth (unknown) was observed. So the need was raised to isolate pure form of Tricoderma viridae from the powder. To isolate Tricoderma viridae from the given powder sample by Streak plate method. Main objectives of this project are: To isolate Tricoderma viridae from the given powder sample by Streak plate method. To learn and improve the plating skills. More details of this project are here :...

Perforated Bags

Perforated Bags – As optimum flow of air is a key point in the composting, these bags plays vital role. They serves purpose of allowing aeration to the mixture (Garbage + Culture) unloaded. According to the study, we requires to provide more than 30 % open area in order to avoid the foul smell. The bags are made with shade net (50% open area) stitched to the MS ring (FRP coated) with the help of thread. MS rings are of 18 inch diameter. There are 3 rings attached at a distance of 1 feet between each ring. The reason...
