Sustainable agriculture division of TERI envisions to offering new products and advanced technological services for farm profitability by leveraging our expertise, strengths and experiences in applied cutting-edge research, innovations and education. The end goal is to educate and empower agricultural community to achieve higher economic benefits through greater societal engagements and promotion of small farmer entrepreneurship while ensuring sustainability and conservation of natural resources.
Our works include products & technology development, cutting-edge research & innovations, policy research and implementation in areas of water, energy, soil and alternative farming systems
TERI has developed technology to encapsulate non sporulating microbes, which has increased their shelf life upto 18 months and can tolerate temperature from 10 to 40oC. A ready to use formulation has been developed for seed coating to increase crop productivity and reduce the dosage of chemical fertilizers.
The highly concentrated, pure, viable, contamination-free Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungal (AMF) inoculum grown in laboratory is compatible with almost all generic carriers, additives, polymers and binding agents suitable to formulate the finished products such as powder, and granule
The TERI-DeakinNanobiotechnology Centre (TDNBC) is devoted to developing innovative nano-nutrients products to address current challenges in the field of agriculture and the environment. TDNBC’s acquired expertise in the biological production technology of zinc-iron, phosphorous and zinc-iron-phosphorous with mesoporousnanocarriernano-nutrients
TERI’s has established TRISHA (TERI's Research Initiative at Supi for Himalayan Advancement) at Supi village in Nainital district, Uttarakhand to support local farmers and help them in livelihood generation through the use of sustainable agricultural practices.
Micropropagation is a proven means of producing millions of genetically identical plants under germ-free conditions. TERI has an extensive capacity in the area of plant tissue culture backed-up with three decades of research.
In view of the stark reality of increasing demand for food production, food security, and nutrient deficiency, Mycorrhiza will in the future play a key role in sustainable agriculture owing to its contribution to the plant apropos to phosphorous nutrition.Read More
We are promoting cost-effective environmental friendly alternatives for higher plant productivity in marginal lands, unproductive lands as well as in the reclamation of wide categories of wastelands and industry created wastes.Read More
Integrated seed coating is a technique in whichbiological, nanonutrients, and biostimulants etc. are applied to seed with an aim to provide protection against the abiotic and biotic factors and improve the establishment of healthy seedling of crops.Read More
Next generation microencapsulation technology of TERI for nodulating rhizobacteria (non-sporulating bacteria) species using natural polysaccharides will lead to desired size of microspheres loaded with microbes for seed coating applications with higher shelf life.Read More
The global market for nanotechnology-based products, including agriinput products, is expected to reach $125 billion in 2024. It is now well established that the future sustainable growth of agriculture would depend on innovative nano-interventions.Read More
