Development of bio-agent and mycorrhiza colonized seedlings of Horticultural crops by rural women for Dissemination of Technology



  1. To generate awareness among rural women and men farmers on the potential use of bio-agents and production of bio-agent colonized seedlings.
  2. To standardize the strategies for the production of bio-agent colonized seedlings of horticultural crops (Capsicum, cauliflower, cabbage, papaya, root stocks of pomegranate and guava, tissue culture banana seedlings).
  3. To take up mass production of bio-agents (Paecilomyces lilacinus, Pseudomonas fluorescens, VAM-- Glomus mosseae, Glomus fasiculatum).
  4. To conduct fifteen training programme and train the rural women (1125 women farmers) in the production of bio-agent colonized seedlings and motivating them to take up the production  use these seedlings  in their fields.
  5. To establish linkages between rural women, NGOs and other agencies
