अध्ययन के दौरान दल द्वारा सहारनपुर जिले के बेहट, नकुड़, सढोली कदीम, मुजफफराबाद, अनवरपुर, बरोली, खिड़का, जुनारदार, संसारपुर, फतेहपुर कलां आदि के गांवों में बागानों एवं नर्सरियों का निरीक्षण किया एवं बागवानों से साक्षात्कार किया गया। साथ ही साथ नयी पद्धति से नर्सरी में कलम बनाना, आम के पेड़ों में होने वाली गंभीर समस्याओं जैसे एक वर्ष फल आना, दूसरे वर्ष फल का न आना, आम का फटना, आम का छोटा हो जाना, जेली सीड, कीट एवं फफूंदी का प्रकोप जैसे- थ्रीपस, जालाकीट, सूट गाल शिला का आना, सोल्डर ब्राउनिंग (काले धब्बे) के रोकथाम पर चर्चा हुई।

बागों के निरीक्षण एवं बागवानों के साक्षात्कार के बाद एक जागरूकता कार्यक्रम का आयोजन उद्यान संस्थान, कम्पनीबाग में किया गया। जिसमें लगभग 35 प्रगतिशील किसानों ने भाग लिया और क्लस्टर आधारित मूल्य श्रृंखला में सम्भावित पहल की बाधाओं एवं अवसरों और प्राथमिकता पर विचार-विमर्श किया गया। जिसमें किसानों ने अपनी बागवानी से सम्बन्धित मुख्य समस्याओं की चर्चा की। इस कार्यक्रम में किसानों के साथ-साथ बेहट के पूर्व विधायक श्री महावीर सिंह राणा, संयुक्त निदेशक श्री राजेश प्रसाद, उप निदेशक डा. जय भगवान एवं उद्यान संस्थान के वैज्ञानिकों ने भाग लिया।

ICAR-CISH RRS, Malda with support of, Mr. Rahul Chakraborty, District Horticulture Officer of Malda have been trying to do market promotion of traditional mango varieties through providing a stall with rare collection mangoes at Bandh Road, Malda (Rani Pasand, Kancha Mitha, Misrikand, Madhu Chsuki, Safder Pasand, Sahi Pasand, Naku Bhog, Sarada Bhog, Mithua, Madhu Rashmi, Choto Brindabani, Kishan Bhog etc.) from experimental farm of ICAR-CISH, Malda and receiving very good response from local dwellers (Informed by Dr. Dipak Nayak, Scientist & In-charge, ICAR-CISH RRS, Malda).

It has been observed that many traditional varieties have very good market potential if we promote the variety with highlighting its special characters. Mango growers of Malda & Murshidabad districts usually not getting good market rate of traditional varieties as non-descriptive variety & non-commercial varieties (guthi/ aathi varieties). As a result, mango growers are losing interest for cultivation of traditional varieties, not doing any take care of traditional varieties and sometimes cutting down the tree for meeting their urgent expenses. In this way, we have been losing the very rich traditional mango diversity of Malda and Murshidabad districts. This initiative will be strengthen and intensified in coming years with group of traditional mango growers for commercial production of traditional mangoes.

Dr. Dipak Nayak informed that Hon’ble Minister In-charge & Director of Horticulture, Dept. of FPI & Horticulture, Govt. of West Bengal have also encouraged ICAR-CISH RRS, Malda to intensify the work on documentation, conservation and exploring the potential of traditional and rare varieties of mango from Malda and Murshidabad districts.

Transfer of technology: MoU with CST UP

CISH signed MOU with CST UP for transfer of improved technology for making Vinegar. CST UP will extend the technology to the end user. MoU was signed by Dr. S. Rajan Director, CISH and Dr. Anil Yadav, Secretary CST UP.

Vinegar is a sour-tasting condiment and preservative prepared by two successive microbial processes, the first being an alcoholic fermentation by yeasts and the second oxidation of alcohol by Acetobacter aceti. Generally it takes around 3 months for preparing vinegar from sugarcane juice using traditional protocol. CISH has worked out a protocol to reduce the time from 3 months to 1 month using immobilized microbial cells of Acetobacter aceti. Using this protocol about 9 percent of acetic acid can be produced from sugarcane juice in one month with 98 per cent fermentation efficiency. On this occasion Dr. Radhey Lal , Dr. Shashi Rana, Dr. G. Pandey, Dr. R. M. Khan, Dr. D. Pandey and Dr. Tarun Adak were present. Event Date:- 17-05-2017
