AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY AND SOIL SCIENCE

Fertilizers and manures are the crucial inputs in the modern system of coffee cultivation.  Scientific use of fertilizers assumes vital importance for sustainable coffee cultivation.  The agricultural and soil science aspects of coffee cultivation forms the mandate of the faculty.  Both academic and applied research in this direction are being carried out.  Trials on fertilizers, manures and micro-nutrients are being conducted.  Routine soil, leaf and agro-chemical analysis for the purpose of advisory to the growers also form a part of the programme.  Interdisciplinary research is the recent trend undertaken by the division.
