Teaching & Research
List of Projects completed:

  • To develop viable technologies and to promote backyard poultry in rural areas.
  • NATP on management of costal agro-eco system affected by super cyclone in Orissa.
  • Evaluation of Native, Exotic ducks and their crossbred
  • Utilization Of cassava (Manihot esculent crantz) as energy feed in poultry.
  • Identification of available feed resources and their effective utilization in backyard system for optimum
  • Production performances of indigenous Khasi Local pigs and their improvement through cross breeding programme.
  • Rabbit production for meat purpose in North Eastern Hill Region.
  • Farming System Research Project.
  • Forage based dairy production in NEH region.
  • To study the incidence and etiology of anoestrous in dairy cattle of NEH region.
  • Augmentation of fertility and hatchability through incorporation of certain additives to poultry semen with special reference to broiler variety. (Ph.D. work)


On Going Projects:

  • Investigation into the Reproductive Physiology and semen characteristics of                                                            

ducks to augment fertility and hatchability.

  • Nutrient requirements of ducks.                                  
  • Backyard poultry and duck production as a tool to sustainable livelihood for rural women of Khurda district of Orissa. (DST)
  • “Sustainable livelihood improvement through integrated freshwater aquaculture, horticulture and livestock development in Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar and Sambalpur districts of Orissa” (NAIP: Component-3)

Trainings/Short courses:
I have attended several short course and training programme related to my field of work. Besides I have also acted as resources person in many farmers’ training programme.
I have organized one workshop on “Backyard poultry and Duck production” at Regional Centre, CARI, Bhubaneswar in which progressive farmers, technocrats, scientists, officers of line department and business groups joined who are directly and indirectly involved with the rural poultry poultry production system.
