Experience In The Area

  • Rain Water Harvesting projects sponsored by RANA (Rajasthan Association of North America) are already in progress. Further experimentation for making the stored water suitable for drinking, well recharging and other purposes are in progress.
  • The development of intelligent sensors and computer controlled system for irrigation purposes has already been undertaken under a Microsoft sponsored project.
  • Tissue culture and biotechnology based developments have been undertaken from time to time.
  • Many projects on Non-Conventional Energy Sources are already in progress and can be integrated with the proposed project.
  • Many other projects on watershed development, water testing, training of manpower, etc. have been carried out in the past 
  • Energy efficient house: For the purpose four rooms were constructed with different architectural/ structural elements. Observations were made for three years in terms of room temperature. Results were compared among static sub shade, cavity walls, and hollow roofs with other modifications.
  • Solar house was integrated with rain water harvesting scheme and tank of capacity four lacs litre was constructed; extended area around tank is created  to harness more rainwater and other roof tops were connected
  • Papers were published in International and National Journals and conferences of High repute.

Achievements

A water management system consisting of rainwater harvesting pipelines, tank, solar pump, and drip irrigation equipment has been constructed and a plantation that uses water from this system developed.
A biotechnology complex consisting of a tissue culture lab and Greenhouse has been constructed. Rare desert plants like Gagool, Jatropha, etc. are being propagated and exploration of new crops like Olive is being explored.
 
Nurseries to take the greenhouse plants are under implementation.
 
Last two years three papers are published in International reputed journals and
two reputed International conferences and one Ph.D. scholar has completed her doctorate along with some first-degree projects.
 
Last year (2017) the solar house was integrated with rain water harvesting scheme and tank was covered, extended roof is fabricated to harness more rainwater and some roof tops were connected. 
 
This year (2018) ground is cleaned and leveled to apply contour irrigation system. Downward slope is made to flow the water in one direction.
