Significant contributions/ Technologies developed and incorporated in Package of Practices for Horticulture Crops of SKUAST-J 2015
Title Details of Patent/ Registration/ Commercialization  Year
Rejuvenation of old/senile/unproductive mango orchards v A rejuvenation technique has been standardized along with the complete calendar of operations to the extent of its commercialization as 30-40 per cent of the mango orchards in Jammu province are old/senile. This technology has been demonstrated successfully on the farmers field in Jammu and Kathua districts of Jammu province (Rejuvenation technology developed for old/senile mango orchards has been incorporated in the Package of practices for Horticulture crops 2015 of SKUAST-J pp 13-15. 2013
Standardization of planting time for phalsa cutting v Phalsa cuttings treated with IBA 300 ppm and planted on 30th July showed highest survival percentage with least time taken for rooting. 2013
Mulching and Foliar nutrition for qualitative improvement/enhancement in shelf-life of strawberry cv. Chandler

 

 

 

 

 

 

v Mulching of strawberry is a beneficial operation in minimizing winter freezing injury to plants, suppressing early spring growth, smothering of weeds, keeping berries clean, conserving soil moisture and reducing berry disease. Planting of strawberry cv. Chandler on 9th October alongwith black polythene mulch under subtropical conditions of Jammu has been recommended as it resulted in maximum growth, yield, quality and runners. This recommendation has been incorporated in the  Package of practices for Horticulture crops 2015 of SKUAST-J pp 140.

 

v For improving the quality and the shelf-life of strawberry cv. Chandler, it has been recommended that foliar application of 0.6 % FeSO4 sprayed 30 days and 80 days after planting results in maximum vegetative growth whereas 0.6 % ZnSO4 application improve quality of Chandler cv. Strawberry. For enhancing the shelf-life upto 60 hours of Chandler cv. of strawberry, it has been recommended to apply CaCl2 0.6 per cent twice i.e. 30 and 80 days after planting. This recommendation has been incorporated in the  Package of practices for Horticulture crops 2015 of SKUAST-J pp 141.

 

2010

 

 

 

 

2013

 

 

 

Wedge grafting in guava v Wedge grafting with polytubes in guava has been standardized for its commercialization in vivo and in vitro conditions in Sardar cultivar of guava. Under in vitro conditions (poly house) maximum graft intake success upto 94.88 % can be achieved when wedge grafting is carried out in the winter season by covering the grafts with polytubes and the recommendation has been incorporated in the  Package of practices for Horticulture crops 2015 of SKUAST-J pp 35. 2012
Standardization of planting density in guava v Planting distance of 6.0 m x 3.0 m (row to row and plant to plant) accommodating 555 plants per hectare has been standardized and recommended for high density orcharding in guava. The demonstration of this planting density in guava has been successfully demonstrated in the district of Samba and Jammu for its commercialization.  This recommendation has been incorporated in the Package of practices for Horticulture crops 2015 of SKUAST-J pp 35. 2012
Standardization of planting density in mango v Planting distance of 4.5 m x 4.5 m (row to row and plant to plant) accommodating 495 plants per hectare has been standardized and recommended for high density orcharding in mango. The demonstration of this planting density in mango has been successfully demonstrated in the district of Samba and Jammu for its commercialization and has been incorporated in SKUAST-J Package of practices 2015 pp. 12. 2012
Standardization of polythene bags for planting of Litchi v The litchi layers treated with IBA 500 ppm in the first week of August and planted in polythene bags of size 22 cm x 10 cm x 8 cm filled with the soil of litchi orchard resulted in 98.29 per cent rooting with survival of 91.45 per cent within 210 days of planting litchi layers. This recommendation has been incorporated in Package of practices of SKUAST-J 2015 pp. 30. 2012
Technology for drying of wild pomegranate (Anardana) v Sun drying for 38 hours is recommended for drying of wild pomegranate (Anardana). Use muslin cloth for hygienic drying instead of gunny bags for drying on rooftops. Small poly tent structures can be used for septic drying of anardana.These recommendations are incorporated in package of practices for Horticulture Crops 2015 at pp. 2007
Standardization of production technology in olive v The production technology for over-coming the problem of unfruitfulness in olive has been standardized upto the extent of its commercialization. Following recommendations have been made and suitably added in the package of practices for making the olive culture viable/profitable in Jammu province.

v Nutrition:

i. Nitrogenous fertilizer should be applied in three split doses, viz., immediately after harvest, onset of spring season and in the beginning of rainy season.

ii. Apply 200 g borax per tree in alternate years.

iii. In drought prone areas, two foliar spray of urea (1.0%) and boric acid (0.4%) should be applied during pre bloom and post bloom, respectively.

Irrigation

i.In autumn, apply two irrigations immediately after harvest, at an interval of 20 days.

ii. Apply two irrigation four weeks prior to expected time of flowering which ensures adequate development of flowers and lower down the flower bud abscission.

iii. The tree should be irrigated after two weeks of the peak bloom period as it improves fruit set.

iv. One irrigation should be given a month after fruit set to stimulate development of fruit and reduce fruit drop.

2007
Integrated nutrient management in guava v In Sardar cultivar of guava, 50 % nitrogen requirement could be replaced by poultry manure when used with urea augmented with Azotobacter, 25 % nitrogen in the form of FYM integrated with urea augmented with Azotobacter was also found equally effective in increasing the yield, quality and nutrient status of fruit, leaf and soil and the recommendation has been incorporated in the SKUAST-J package of practices for fruit crops. 2006
Technology for postharvest management of Peach v The  peaches stored in polythene bags of 1006 mm holes per m2 improved the quality of fruit. Howver, intermittent warming coupled with modified atmospheric storage is effective in preventing chilling injury and prolonging storage life of peach cv. Flordasun.  This recommendation is incorporated in package of practices for Horticulture Crops 2015 at pp. 107. 2004

·        I started one Missionary programme of planting fruit plants under the aegis of STAMBH CHARITABLE TRUST with the name of Save Horticulture wherein I requested each of my students, friends and relatives to plant atleast one fruit plant and give their contribution in saving environment. Secondly, the fruits of these plants will be consumed by the person which will be helpful to provide nutritional security to the consumers. Our aim is to aware the people of importance of fruit plants which is the need of the hour under climate changing scenario. We will also provide technical know-how to the growers by our facebbok group of Save Horticulture or our Whatsapp group. We are happy to inform that within a period of 4 months 950 fruit plants were planted in Jammu, Kathua, Samba, Haryana, and Rajasthan. You will visit our facebook page also:
