Biopesticide Unit

line
 

 The KVK Kottayam had been in the forefront of popularising the successful technologies developed by the University that helped to make substantial contribution in improving the livelihood of rural population in the District. The bio-pesticide laboratory functioning successfully ever since its inception has been a major source of reputation to the KVK. In addition, it also generates substantial revenue to the University by way of sales of two bio-fungicide viz. Pseudomonas and Trichoderma. The unit is managed by Haritha Self Help Group members who were trained in the KVK.  As per their MOU with KAU, they will receive 20 per cent of the sales proceeds as wages for labour.  The produce is being marketed through the sales centre, KVK, Kottayam. The rate for these biofungicides is fixed as Rs. 50 per kg.
