  • Projects

    Analysis of surface and groundwater pollution by indiscriminate use of pesticides in farms in India (Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF))
    Vegetable and soil samples are being analysed for pesticide residue. In addition, training to farmers for judicious use of pesticide including IPM. by (Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF))

    Dissipation, leaching and persistence of chlorpyrifos in three types of soils with different pH(Department of Science and Technology (DST) in collaboration with CWRDM)
    As chlorpyrifos is being used indiscriminately in India for termite control in household and in agricultural practices for various crop protection packages without testing soil properties above parameters are being studied taking soil of different types from various parts of India.by (Department of Science and Technology (DST) )

    Study of contamination of soil and water through heavily loaded unlined drains in Delhi(Ministry of Earth Sciences (MOES))
    The project work is planned specially keeping in view the problem of groundwater contamination in Indian context through unlined drains which are over loaded, with sewage waste from huge urban population and also waste from industries, lysimetric studies are important to know the possible sources and types of groundwater contamination through leaching.by (Ministry of Earth Sciences (MOES))
