Title: Institute of Forest Productivity

Institute of Forest Productivity
  • The Institute came into existence in the year
    1993 with the objective to
  • formulate, organize, direct, manage and carryout
    forestry research and education in eastern region
    of the country, comprising the States of Bihar,
    Jharkhand and West Bengal.
  • The operational area of the Institute
  • Approx. 46,581 km2 forest area
  • 17 of the total geographical area of the country
  • Six agro-ecological zones
  • Eight main forest types.
  • In eastern India, the institute has emerged as a
    premier forestry research organization through
    consistent efforts and hard work of the
    scientists, foresters and technicians.

  • Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India
    established Directorate of Lac Development (DLD),
    Ranchi on 1st April 1966
  • DLD was attached to Forest Research Institute
    (FRI), Dehra Dun under Ministry of Agriculture in
    1985 and subsequently both transferred to newly
    created Ministry of Environment and Forests in
    July 1987.
  • The directorate was separated from the yoke of
    FRI, Dehra Dun as an independent entity, namely
    Institute of Forest Productivity under Indian
    Council of Forestry Research and Education, Dehra
    Dun in 1993.
  • The institute is an amalgamation of four
    erstwhile centrally sponsored schemes viz.
    Forest Soil Vegetation Survey, Midnapore
    Eucalyptus Research Centre, Midnapore,
    Environmental Research Centre, Sukna, and Cash
    Crop Centre, Ranchi.

  • The Institute has a vision of increasing forest
    cover and enhancing forest productivity and its
    mandates are
  • Eco-restoration of degraded lands and mines
  • Research on NWFP including Lac and Tassar
  • Addressing social and livelihood issues
    pertaining to forestry particularly for tribal
    and indigenous groups

  • Forest Research Centre, Mandar, Ranchi
  • Tissue culture, soil testing and biochemistry

Air layering for cloning elite genotypes of Kadamb (Anthocephalus chinensis)
The process developed has potential for cloning elite genotypes of Kadamb( 10-15 years old). The healthy twigs are girdled during July-August, removing about 3-4 cm bark all around to which a combination of 500 ppm indole-3-butyric acid and 500 ppm thiamine- HCl was administered with the help of cotton before covering with soilrite and black polythene sheet. After 45 days, gt80 treated air layers recorded root development. The procedure ensures clonal propagation of desired elite material of Anthocephalus chinensis. The technique is simple, economical and space saving as no separate cloning area, controlled environmental conditions and intermittent misting are required.
Cleft grafting in Kusum (Schleichera oleosa)
Rootstocks used were young healthy seedlings of Kusum, 30-50 cm tall with a stem diameter about the thickness of a pencil, i.e. 5 mm. Scions collected from tree having age between 8 - 20 years. Scions prepared from young twigs with 8-12 mm diameter, taking semi-hard wood portion below 10-15 cm from the tip. Scions were cut to a length of 15-20 cm of semi-hardwood portion only leaving the petioles intact on the scion. The basal end of which was cut to a wedge approximately 1.5 cm long. The rootstock was decapitated at a level where the diameter was approximately equal to that of the scion. A split was made in the rootstock, the scion was inserted. The graft union was tied with polythene tape, covered with plastic bag and kept under shade . A success rate of about 60 per cent graft was obtained. The best time of grafting was between mid of June to mid of August.
Cost effective in vitro propagation of Embelia ribes
Immerse explants for 5-10 min in 2 Cetrimide solution and make free from detergent by 3-4 washings with distilled water. Treat for 10-15 min with 0.2 (w/v) Bavistin solution followed by rinsing with distilled water. Treat explants with 0.2 (w/v) ascorbic acid for 1 h in deep freezer. Surface sterilize by a quick dip in 70 alcohol followed by dip in 0.1 aqueous mercuric chloride solution for 5-7 min. Rinse three times with sterilized distilled water in laminar flow hood. The sterilized explants were inoculated in semisolid MS medium supplemented with antioxidants for 4 weeks. Excise sprouted bud from explants and transfer them to semisolid MS medium supplemented with BA (13.3 µM) to yield 3-4 shoots in 4 weeks, which were subsequently proliferated in several subculture cycles in semisolid MS medium supplemented with BA (13.3 µM). The proliferated shoots gt2.5 cm were rooted in ½MS with IBA (49 µM) within 4 weeks. The plantlets obtained so were hardened for 4 weeks in poly-tunnels, then transferred to polybags and kept under 50 shades for 8 10 weeks.
  • Integrated land development in forest fringe
    villages the Khunti model
  • Model adopted in 10 forest fringe villages in
    tribal dominated areas of Jharkhand under a UNDP
    sponsored project achieved remarkable success in
  • Sustainable livelihood promotion and conservation
    of natural resources, checking migration of rural
    mass to outside state for employment and
    disassociating young people from Maoist and naxal
  • The rural folk revived the traditional practice
    of lac cultivation with scientific and technical
    support of the institute.
  • The model encouraged large scale lac cultivation
    on new host plant Flemingia semialta in farmers
    fields to reap financial benefits to the tune of
    Rs 70,000- 90,000 per family annually.
  • The intervention reduces the gestation period to
    1 year and facilitates intensive management for
    enhanced crop yield.

  • From migrant to saviour of the forest A life
  • Etwa Munda migrant labourer used to cut wood from
    the forest and sell to meet his livelihood needs.
  • With financial support and capacity building
    under UNDP sponsored project his life has been
    transformed completely.
  • Integrated land management has helped him year
    round income from multiple cropping and lac
  • Etwa is now an active member of the Jungle
    Bachao Samiti and he along with his team members
    protects 15 acres of jungle.

  • Barricading water for prosperity Rock filled
    dams in Palamu
  • Palamu area of Jharkhand has serious problem of
    draught and insurgency.
  • The water availability is limiting factor for
    crop production and reduction in forest
  • However, a perennial water stream flows in the
    area which usually dries in the summer time. The
    village community decided to slow down the flow
    of water in the stream aiming at enhanced
    percolation of water in the soil.
  • This activity changed the lifestyle of the local
    people with increase in household income due to
    ensured irrigation for summer cropping.

  • Enabling vulnerable groups through lift
  • Small village of Sarwaha in Churchu block of
    Ramgarh district consisted of 364 household
    occupying a total area of 987 ha. It is a
    midstream village in Bokaro River sub basin, far
    from the functional mining zone. Its population
    of 2,049 individuals is dominated by Scheduled
    Tribes (51).
  • As livelihood promotion strategy, a lift
    Irrigation unit was installed beside the river to
    help the community to better manage their water
    resource. A forward linkage was established by
    creation of vermicompost unit to nurture
    vegetables and other crops by organic fertilizer.
  • Only 3 land was used for cultivation prior to
    implementation of activity whereas now it has
    increased up to 45 to 50.

  • Minimizing Man-Animal Conflict
  • Betla Tiger Reserve in Barwadih block of Latehar
    district in Palamu is known for migratory route
    of wild elephants coming from Bareshand forest
    zone to Betla and back every year at specific
    times and season.
  • Strategy was adopted to conserve biodiversity and
    avoid man-wildlife conflict.
  • The lift tower irrigation facility was installed
    to improve crop and vegetable production for
    sustained income generation.
  • The activity was strengthened with ex situ
    conservation measure for medicinal plant in order
    to discourage collection/ selling of medicinal
    plants from the forest area.
