DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERIOR VARIETIES AND THEIR AGRO-TECHNOLOGIES AND ASSESSMENT OF THEIR SUITABILITY FOR SPECIFIC AGRO-CLIMATIC REGIONS.

Activities Proposed

  • Development of superior varieties possessing desired traits like higher yield potential, source of novel/in-demand aroma chemical, early maturing, suitable for stressed/degraded lands, low irrigation requirements/drought tolerance etc.
  • Multi-locational assessment for their suitability in different agro-climatic regions .
  • Agro technology including post harvest optimization for different agro-climate zones.

Deliverables

  • High-yielding varieties/chemotypes of ┬áLemongrass, Palmarosa, Lavender, Rosemary, Jammu Monarda, Salvia sclarea, Mint, Ocimum, Geranium would be developed and released for commercial cultivation.
  • Region- and environment-specific genotypes of Lemongrass, Palmarosa, Lavender, Rosemary, Jammu Monarda, Salvia sclarea, Mint, Ocimum, Geranium would be identified.
  • Agrotechnologies for Lemongrass, Palmarosa, Lavender, Rosemary, Jammu Monarda, Salvia sclarea, Mint, Ocimum, Geranium would be optimized for different agro-climatic zones as well as for stressed environments.
