Title of research theme:

  1. Network Project On “Harvesting, Processing and Value Addition of Natural Resin and Gums”

Objectives:

i) To study production, processing, marketing and utilization of oleoresins

ii) To develop standardize protocol for tapping and collection

iii) To improve/ refine the present primary processing techniques for

enhanced recovery and quality.

iv) To transfer the oleoresin specific technologies in the region.




  1. Facilities for Research in the Department of Forest Products


Objectives:

To equip the laboratories for practical exercises of the students and to create facilities for conduct of research work of P.G. students and also to carry out research in the field of Forest Products.



3) Characterization of Pinus roxburghii for resin yield and spiral grain formation in wood using NIR spectroscopy and association studies using molecular markers.

Objectives:

  1. Validation of already developed markers for high and low resin yield.

  2. Screening of Inter Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) markers for identification of markers associated with the resin yield.

  3. Molecular characterization of twisted pines

  4. Development of NIR based application methods in relation to spiral grain formation and resin yield in Pinus roxburghii


4) Establishment of Department of Forest Products
Objectives:

To strengthen the teaching at UG and PG levels in the fields of Forest Products
