Van Mahotsav 2021
On the occasion of Van Mahotsav, the Department of Botany is organising a webinar on ‘Grass Research in India, Past and Present” on 8th July 2021. The objectives of Van Mahotsav visualised by Dr. K M Munshi were to increase the production of fruits, adding to potential food resources of the country, creating shelterbelts around agricultural fields to increase their productivity, provide fodder leaves for cattle to relieve intensity of grazing over reserve forests, boost soil conservation to prevent further deterioration of soil fertility. Grasses are an important component of ecosystems, hence a focus on their structural intricacies and ecological role in forest ecosystems is essential.
This webinar will give an insight to the Grass research in India.
