To increase the production of fruits and vegetable at high altitude low temperature areas DRL has standardized and popularized soilless or pro-tray nursery raising technology.
The technology is cost effective and provides quality planting material.
Technology has been successfully applied on crops like cole crops (cauliflower, cabbage, knoll-khol etc.), solanaceous crops (tomato, chilli, capsicum and brinjal) and poly bag nursery for cucurbitaceous crops (cucumber, bottle gourd, sponge gourd, bitter gourd and squash etc.).
Vegetable seedlings regularly grown at DRL on mass scale to distribute it to Army units,farmers and local people of two DRL adopted villages- Seru and Namet in Arunachal Pradesh.
Poly bag nursery has also been proven effective for cucurbitaceous crops like cucumber, bottle gourd, sponge gourd, bitter gourd etc.
