AGRO-FORESTRY & EXTENSION ACTIVITIES


  • Important indigenous multipurpose species from agro forestry point of view like Grewia optiva (Beul), Ulmus laevigataBauhinia variegata (Kachnar) and fast growing exotics including Populus deltoides (mainly clones G3 & G48) were propagated in nurseries and distributed to the farmers in the selected villages in Paonta Valley and Bath Valley for Planting as per the designated agroforestry model.
  • Suitable agroforestry models developed in the farmer's fields and distributed more than 5 lacs ETPs of Poplar to the farmers free of cost during 1993-2000 along-with technical knowhow.
Traditional Agroforestry Practice in Hills of HP
Developed Agroforestry Model 

 

  • Intercropping models for high hill temperate regions:  
Till recently growing of temperate fruits was lucrative business Himachal Pradesh but continuous failure of these fruit crops due to erratic rainfall accompanied with very less snow fall, increased incidence of various insect pest and diseases attacks, overall rising temperature and decreasing forest areas of the region, shortened chilling hours required by the apple trees during winter for optimum flowering and fruit setting thereby resulting in low yields and lower qualities have forced the farmers/ horticulturist to look for some other alternatives to supplement their income through diversification. The Institute worked on these lines and through scientific inputs developed suitable intercropping model for commercially important medicinal plants viz. Aconitum heterophyllum (Atish), Valeriana jatamansi (Muskbala), Picrorhiza kurrooa (Kutki), Polygonetum verticillatum (Salam misri) and Angelica glauca (Chora) with horticultural plantations in high hill temperate region of Himachal Pradesh to help farmers in augmenting their income besides helping in productivity enhancement per unit area of land.
