About Project

Nagarjun Medicinal Plants Garden has been established in the university during 1976 on 8.00 hectares land. At present garden possesses more than 340 Medicinal plant species, which have been registered under IC numberswith NBPGR, New Delhi. The research work on commercial viable medicinal plant species was also under taken to develop the agro technologies and uptill now 30 recommendations have been released on Periwinkle, Babchi, Khasikateri, Muskdana, Safed musli, Kalmegh, Ashwagandha, Palmarosa, Lemongrass and Isabgol.
The project All India Networking Research project (Formerly AICRP) on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants has been functioning in the University from January 1997. Since its inception the research works on Periwinkle, Khasikateri, Babchi, Safed Musli, Ashwagandha, Muskdana, Kalmegh, Isabgol has been carried out under the technical research programme on crop improvement, crop production and phyto chemistry.

Research Recommendations

Research Recommendations accepted by Research finding committee/Joint Agresco

Sr. No
Recommendation
Approved by RFC/Joint Agresco/ AINRP
1
It is recommended to grow Sadaphuli (Periwinkle) variety Selection-1 and M-153 for obtaining maximum root foliage and alkaloid yield RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
2
The shade of orchard reduced the dry root foliage and alkaloid yield of Sadaphulli (Periwinkle). Therefore it is better not to grow periwinkle under the shade. RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
3
Periwinkle varieties, Selection-1 and M-153 are recommended for cultivation. Shade of mango orchard reduced the dry root, foliage and alkaloid yields adversely. Therefore, it is better not to grow periwinkle under shade of mango trees. RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
 
4
It is recommended to grow wild brinjal variety Akra mahima (Tetra ploid) with spacing of 30 x 30 cm2 and fertilizer dose of @ 90:60:60 NPK kg/ha. he basis of the seed yield and Psoralen content varieties IC-111228 and IC-111238 of babchi are recommended for cultivation. RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
 
5
It is recommended to grow Isabgol in rabi season after the harvest of groundnut, soybean or pigeonpea (short duration). RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
 
6
On the basis of the seed yield and Psoralen content varieties IC-111228 and IC-111238 of babchi are recommended for cultivation. RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
 
7
It is recommended to apply 50 kg N and 30 kg P2O5 to Isabgol for obtaining maximum seed yield and monetary return. RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
 
8
The planting time around 1st july and harvesting in between 1st to 16th November are recommended for Kalmegh(Andrographis paniculata) for obtaining maximum dry foliage yield as well as yield of total Andrographolide and Iron RFC/ Jt.Agresco/
AICRP
 
9
Planting of Safed musli with one root per hill is recommended for getting highest economic returns. RFC/Jt. Agresco
10
For enhancing the germination percentage of Safed musli seed soaking in GA3 1000 ppm or humic acid 0.5% for 24 hours is recommended. RFC/Jt. Agresco
11
For getting highest number of roots and yield of fresh roots from chlorotic plants, two foliar applications of humic acid (0.05%)+urea(1.0%) or humic acid+ferrous sulphate(0.5%) or humic acid +zinc sulphate(0.5%) or humic acid (0.05%) at an interval of 15 days is recommended RFC/Jt. Agresco
12
It is recommended that application of 75 Kg N ha¬-1 and 50 Kg. P2O5 ha-1 to Kastur bhendi (Musk dana) for getting higher seed yield and monetary returns. Full dose of P2O5 and half dose of N at the time of sowing and remaining half dose of N after 45 days are to be applied. RFC/Jt. Agresco
13
For getting higher yield and monetary returns, it is recommended that the planting of Safed musli be done at 30 x 10 cm with the application of FYM 20t or 5t vermicompost/ha. RFC/Jt. Agresco
14
For getting highest root yield and monetary returns application of 20t FYM and 25 Kg N/ha at planting is recommended for Safed musli RFC

15

It is recommended to storage Kalmegh herbs powder for 10 months period for maximum andrographolide contents RFC/Jt. Agresco
16
It is recommended to sow Isabgol crop between 10th -20th November and seed rate 4 kg per hectare for getting higher seed yield and monetary returns. RFC/Jt. Agresco
17
Safed Safed musli powder prepared from the roots dried under sun (for three days) or oven (at 60oC,for 24 hours) be stored for 12 months period in airtight container to retain the saponin content. RFC/Jt. Agresco
18
For getting higher root yield, it is recommended to plant shavatari seedling at 60×60 cm spacing and harvest the crop at 24 months duration. RFC/ Jt. Agresco
19
It is recommended to harvest Aswagandha crop at 100 % flowering stage to get the highest dry root yield and total alkaloids yield. RFC/ Jt. Agresco
20
It is recommended to harvest safed musli at 180 days after planting to get higher dry root yield and total saponin yield. RFC/ Jt. Agresco
21
Significantly highest root yield and GMR, NMR was recorded with the seed rate of 10 kg ha-1, however, it was at par with 9 kg ha-1. RFC/ Jt. Agresco
22
For obtaining higher root yield, alkaloids yield and monetary return from Ashwagandha, the application of 5 t FYM ha-1 is recommended. RFC/ Jt. Agresco
23
It is recommended to use the unpeeled musli for medicinal use in view of the reduction of saponin contents due to peeling of safed musli roots. RFC/ Jt. Agresco
24
To retain the maximum saponin content during storage up to the period of 10 months, it is recommended to store the dried roots of shatavari as such. RFC/ Jt. Agresco
