     Important Research Contributions / Technologies developed

     1. Standardization of Indoor rearing technology- It facilitates successful domestication of the wild tasar silkworms.

     2. Tasar Brushing Bag - The device makes the tedious brushing process simpler and quicker, there by minimizing the brushing time and is helpful in maintaining uniformity in larval growth

     3. Tasar Spinning Mountage Improves the spinning by about 15% over the traditional practice.

     4. Rearing of Antheraea mylitta D. on Cashew nut (Anacardium occidentale) Rearing of silkworm, A, mylitta was conducted for the first time ( In Ranchi condition) on A. occidentale  (cashew  plant) at state Agriculture department ,Ranchi, Jharkhand

     5. Indoor rearing cum spinning frame was developed for the young age silkworm
and for late age silkworm, which restrict the movement of the worm in tray.

    6. Shoot preservation technology- It helps to improve the moisture content of the      leaves.
