Brief Achievements
Identification and isolation of pheromone and kairomone compounds for the pest viz; fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis, melon fly, Uzi Fly Exorista Bombysis and thrips which led to successful trapping method of these insects and further commercialization of the same.
Successful counteraction of effect of aflatoxin in animal feed by various physicochemical methods
Area wise mapping of Karnataka state for fluoride level in drinking water
Chelated mineral production and their effective use in dairy industry
Developed successful quarantine method (Chemical) to control the spread of Lernaea cyprinacea infection to new fingerlings
