Glass House Cum Net House

The glass cum net house has the following structures such as (a) Ante room, (b) Preparation room and (c) Maintenance room. The total area of the glass cum net house is 15 m x 7.5 m.

The main objectives of the glass house are to carry out pathological studies under controlled conditions (free from any contaminations) and also pure culturing and maintenance of various Biofertilizers including VAM fungi. The following experiments can be conducted in the glass house:

  • Conducting pathogenicity tests i.e., to test the pathogens isolated from the diseased samples for confirming their pathogenic virulence.
  • In vitro screening of seedlings, saplings, clonal materials etc against the targeted plant pathogens under controlled conditions.
  • Pure culture production of VAM fungi using suitable host cover crops and maintenance of the same.
  • Mass multiplication of different VAM fungi using suitable carrier materials and host plants.
  • Evaluation of efficacy of different VAM fungi on growth improvement of various tree species in controlled conditions.
  • Evaluation of efficacy of different Ectomycorrhizal fungi on growth improvement of various tree species in controlled conditions.
