Thematic Areas/ Research Areas

"We use nano-sized materials to build powerful technologies of future".

The NBRC team aims to use fundamental science to develop next generation of products, processes and technologies to cater to the emerging societal needs. Some of the key thematic areas of research include novel agri input nanomaterials, nanomaterials for efficient delivery of agrochemicals, sensing platforms for agriculture and environment, crop improvement through advanced molecular tools, novel and functional microbiomes for sustainable agriculture, nanomaterials for renewable energy, integration of energy with agriculture, bioremediation of emerging contaminants and novel metabolites as nutritional/functional food agents and phytomedicines to manage and treat plant diseases arising from microbes.
