The renovated physicochemical lab. is made on State-of-art standards which aims at maintaining the physical quality of the foodgrains in merchantable condition like checking the presence of foreign matter, other foodgrains, damaged, weevilled, shriveled, shrunken & broken foodgrains, poisonous .
The lab has been fully facilitated to analysis / determine the chemical constituents and nutritive value of the food grains such as Carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, crude fibre, vitamins, minerals, ash, moisture etc. The lab is also used for research purpose by conducting various R&D activities on applied aspects of biochemical constituents present in foodgrains.

Pesticides Residue & Mycotoxins analysis Lab
The laboratory is one among the advanced of its type in the country, where the foodgrains are thoroughly examined for the residues of pesticides which are being used to control stored grain pest in Indian condition such as Malathion, Deltamethrin, Aluminum Phosphide and Dichlorvos and mycotoxin contaminants such as Aflatoxin A and Aflatoxin B. The laboratory has been renovated and equipped with sophisticated instruments for the analysis such as GC-ECD, GCMS/MS, LCMS/MS and HPLC. Know More
Insect Culture Lab
The goal of organized insect rearing is to provide reliable, affordable sources of high-quality insects for their many important purposes. We are now able to rear literally thousands of insect species through multiple generations and many more for part of their life cycles. Know More
