  • BN ?Red (INGR No. 07049) and BN Okra ( INGR NO . 07050) registered with NBPGR New Delhi on 14 th May 2007.
  • CPF-1 (INGR No. 07036) and CSPF-1 (INGR No. 07035) registered with NBPGR New Delhi on 14 th May 2007.
  • Germplasm line CIR-12 & CIR 13 of cotton (INGR08032 &08033) registered with NBPGR New Delhi on 9th July 2008.
  • Germplasm line CISA-2 of cotton (INGR 10057) registered with NBPGR New Delhi on 18th May 2010.

Release of Varieties and Hybrids

  • Motihari tobacco variety Sel.8-4-1 (Dharla) was released for North Bengal region.
  • Desi cotton ( G arboreum ) varieties CISA -310 (CICR-1) and CISA-614 (CICR-3) were released for north zone.
  • Intra hirsutum hybrid CSHH-29 (Omshanker), CSHH-198 ( Shresth), CSHH-238 (Kalyan ), CSHH-243 (Simaran) and GMS based intra arboreum hybrid CISAA-2 (CICR-2) were released for north zone.
  • GMS based intra arboreum hybrid CISAA-2 (CICR-2) was released for north zone.
  • American cotton (G hirsutum) variety CSH 3129 with better yield and quality and CSH 3075 under High density planting system identified for north zone.

Detection system for cotton leaf curl virus disease

  • Diagnostic tools for the detection of cotton Leaf curl disease (c.o. cotton leaf curl virus) were developed. In these studies, b ased on conserved sequences a pair of primers was designed to amplify full length coat protein (CP) sequence from the Sirsa strain of cotton leaf curl virus (CLCuV). The primer pair was used to detect CLCuV in infected cotton plants, weeds and whitefly by amplification of a 771 bp CP gene of the virus. The gene amplified from infected plants was cloned sequenced and published in gene bank (AY 577460).

Development of screening nursery for cotton leaf curl virus disease

  • A screening nursery with planting of Cotton leaf curl virus (CLCuV) and whitefly susceptible varieties all around the field to create a hedge and pruning of these plants in the off season to maintain the inoculums of the disease has been developed at Central Institute for Cotton Research, Regional Station, Sirsa for effective screening of entries against the disease. Up to 90 % disease incidence was noted in this screening nursery. All AICCIP national trials entries and other important material is screened in this nursery. ( Paper published in proceedings of World Cotton Research Conference at Cape Town , South Africa March 9-13, 2003.p 1407-1414.)

Development of sick field against cotton root rots disease

  • Cultivation of susceptible desi cotton variety, Incorporation of inoculum (diseased roots) in the field during and after the cotton season, addition of inoculum of root rot pathogens ( R. bataticola & R. solani ) raised under laboratory conditions and cultivation of a root rot susceptible crop during the off season led to the development of root rot disease sick field. Mapping of individual plants was also carried out at fortnightly interval to find out the pattern of root rot incidence. The maps constructed in the first fortnight of September during 1990 ?1992 had revealed quite uniform incidence of root rot in the field. The above studies indicate the successful development of root rot sick field. This facility could be further used for conducting various types of field experiments to study the biology and management aspects of this important disease. (Monga, D, and Raj, S. (2003) Development of sick field for screening against root rot of cotton. J. Cotton Res. Dev. 17: 59-61.)

Development of primer for detection of Rhizoctonia bataticola

  • Diagnostic tools for the detection and differentiation of causal organisms of this disease have been developed. In these studies a mplification of Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region of isolates of Rhizoctonia species (six isolates of R. bataticola and four isolates of R solani ), the causal agent of root rot of cotton was done. The amplified fragments were cloned sequenced and the sequences were published in gene bank (DQ 222238-41, DQ 223780-82, DQ 408294, DQ 212767, DQ 218056 ). Based on sequence information primers specific to each causal agent of root rot disease have been developed.

A new entomopathogen for mealy bug management

  • Cadavers of Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley were collected from locations in Haryana and Punjab during 2007-2010.The entomofungal pathogen, Fusarium pallidoroseum (Cooke) Sacc., was consistently isolated from all locations during three seasons. The recovery of the entomopathogen varied among locations and seasons. Koch’s postulates were proved by reisolating the same fungus from infected mealy bugs. In the laboratory, F. pallidoroseum caused 80-95% mortality of P. solenopsis. Protocols for screening of Bt cotton hybrids against cotton leaf curl virus disease for north zone
    Protocols for screening of Bt cotton hybrids against cotton leaf curl virus disease for north zone were developed by screening the hybrids at five locations under two dates of sowings in 2014 and based on this the tolerant hybrid were recommended for their cultivation.
