State plans to work on tissue culture for augmenting production of plants
State Science and Technology department is going to tie up with AYUSH department to jointly work on tissue culture to augment production of various plants. A tissue culture laboratory will be set up at Kalyani for this purpose.
The scientists will be engaged to carry out research works on “tissue culture”. The main purpose of the new project was to increase the productivity in various sectors by adopting what would be the best techniques for them to grow.
It may be mentioned here that the Biotechnology department has been carrying out research so that the vegetables and fruits are free from chemical hazards.
It has been seen that the vegetables and fruits that are supplied into various markets in the city are often found to be unhealthy, but it also affects human health as various chemical fertilisers, rich in toxic substances is often administered on the plants to augment the productivity.
The department will also carry out research on how to increase the productivity of cattle.
