  • Current area of research: Environmentally sustainable termite control: integrative & inclusive approach of frontier and indigenous technologies (National Fellow ICAR project 2011-16). Contribution to the scientific advancement:

  • Selected as National Fellow ICAR by Search-cum-Selection Committee of ICAR; for the project: Environmentally sustainable termite control: integrative & inclusive approach of frontier and indigenous technologies. Salient contributions under this project.

Data-base development:

  • Termite faunistic list of India (261-spp, 51-Genera, 7 Fam.).

  • Developed National Termite Depository.Reported Heterotermes indicola – a serious termite as urban-pest from Delhi.

  • Gene sequencing accession numbers for 22 Indian termites: acquired from GenBank.

  • Associated fungi in the fungal combs: 10 accessions acquired NCBI GenBank.

  • Developing Website, TermiteXpert, it includes an android app (Termiteapp) as well. (to be launched soon officially under National Fellow Project). 


Pusa Push-pull-strategy (3P4C):

  • Innovated an eco-technology for termite management in wheat-maize agro-ecosystem, i.e. attained with crop residues (pull-site, maize stubbles) and main/target crop (push-site, wheat-rows). The technology was validated, successfully demonstrated to the farmers at Agro-technology Transfer Information Centre, IARI, New Delhi - a milestone achievement. 3P4C can lead to the End-Of-Pipe (EOP) technique in effective biopesticides in termite control.

  • Termiticides used in target-crops (wheat, barley, gram & lentil – rabi & maize – kharif crops), were analysed for residues in the harvested commodities; residues were found below detectable levels (BDL) implying safety aspects of termiticides recommended.

  •  Seed treatment packages for 5 major crops (wheat, maize, soybean, groundnut & chickpea).

  • Termite management module in rain-fed agriculture.

  • In view of serious termite infestation in village Jhargaon Ki Jhopdi (Kota district, Rajasthan - that has created major news headlines i.e. Dainik Bhaskar, May 7; & Oct 18, 2013, The Indian Express July 14, 2013);village was surveyed, the causal termite was correctly identified as H. indicola hitherto known Odontotermes. Subsequent recommendations for management were made (Dainik Bhaskar 28 Nov & 2 Mar 2014).
