Welcome to


School of Natural Resource Management

School of Natural Resource Management (NRM), Studies on investigations on bio-mass production, use of bio-fertilizers and agro-energetics with emphasis on recycling of crop plants, shrubs, tree residues and effective utilization of agricultural wastes; studies on integrated approach for efficient utilization of rainwater and nutrients, and contingent crop planning for rainfed areas; investigations on weather based crop management using medium range weather forecasts; assessment of soil, water, climate and crop resources using remote sensing, GIS, nuclear and other allied techniques for generation of database and resources inventories; development and refinement of bio-fertilizer applications and management practices; identification and utilization of efficient strains of nitrogen fixing and phosphate solubilising microorganisms in relation to soil fertility as well as on developing microbial strategies for augmenting stress and nutrient management and crop productivity etc. Following are the divisions under this school:- Soil Science & Agril Chemistry, Environment Science, Agricultural Engineering, Microbiology
