Developed and tested Isolators for seat vibration in Tractor

  • 90% of vibration attenuation through rubber material.
  • Natural, Neoprene and SBR rubber materials achieve attenuation under field condition to 13.4%, 26.3% and 16.2%.
  • Cost of vibration isolator Rs. 50 per piece.

Design, Development and Testing of Groundnut Testa Remover

  • Shelling efficiency of testa remover was found between 65 to 72% over nylon fiber mate, denim cloth sheet and canvas sheet respectively.
  • The capacity of the machine is 40 kg/h.
  • The processing cost of machine was calculated 0.80 Rs./kg.

Bio Diesel

  • Methyl esters of Soybean, Karanj, Rice bran, Mahua, Ratanjot were tested at different blending ratio.
  • Storage property also studied.
  • Field testing with bio diesels.

Ground Water in Narmada Basin

  • Ground water recharge in 6 districts of upper Narmada basin in 35 lakh ha area is 4.449 M ham.
  • This is equivalent to 12.84 cm depth over the area of basin.
  • Recharge is 10% of normal rainfall.
  • Useful for deciding strategies for ground water management.

Agricultural Thematic Mapping Using Remote Sensing and GIS

The agricultural attribute maps, soil maps, land use/land cover maps, water body maps, crop maps( Kharif and Rabi season) and Geomorphic attribute maps of Tons and Sindh Basin are prepared using satellite imageries and several ground observation throughout the basin during the year 2008-09, 2009-2010 and 2010-2011.

Digital Crop Classification map of Tons Basin

  • Area covered 1.25 M ha.
  • Five districts
  • 35 PAN imageries and 6 LISS III images

Digital Crop Classification map of Sindh Basin

  • Area covered 2.75 M ha.
  • 5 LISS III images
  • Nine district
  • Used for Decision support system.

Ground Water Recharge through Haveli Fields – Water quality deterioration

  • Water quality deterioration in Narsinghpur and Jabalpur district in last 40 years.
  • Na, cu, Cr. So4, Fe, Ho3, Cl, Tn are some of dominant pollutant.
  • Domestic waste Nala is the poorest water quality.

Soybean oil expeller with pretreatment

  • Size reduction, moisture content and heating increases the oil expression.
  • 2.5 mm particle size, 9.5% moisture and heat to 1200C in two passes increases oil recovery to 86%.

Physics and Agro meteorology

  • Complete data on weather parameters containing maximum and minimum temperatures, and rainfall was collected of all the agro-climatic zones of M.P. and was analyzed with previous years to assess changes from normal on a long-term basis.
  • Last October-early November was found suitable time for chickpea planting with desi chickpea cultivars like JG 315, or JG 11.
  • For soybean, JS 97-52 is a good cultivar with planting date from Mid June to first week of July.
  • Occurrence of insects is related with weather parameters.

EXTENSION MANDATE

  • To identify the gaps in the principle and practices for water management, farm machinery utilization, post harvest technology and food processing and suitable agricultural structure with safe environment and to minimize them through proper extension services and agro-advisory services.
  • To study the present status of the contribution of agricultural engineering in state and to seek suitable solutions to problem if any through collaboration with the state and central institutions.
