    Major Research Accomplishments

    •  Designed and developed information package consisting of multimedia (using Macro media Director and Flash softwares) , e-book and video film on clean milk production and tested at field leve
    •  Carried out Information needs assessment of farmers for clean milk production
    • Studied prevalent practices in clean milk production and delineated constraints in adoption of recommended practices in the states of Haryana, Rajasthan, West Bengal and Kerala
    •  Participatory Extension Model on Integrated System for Knowledge Management Deploying Interactive Multimedia was developed
    •  Identified problems and priorities in feeding dairy animals and fodder production and delineated technical options by participatory process
    •  Developed a PTD model for low-external-input sustainable feeding of dairy animals
    •  Linear reciprocal linkages, the strength of linkages and subject matter area of links in Dairy knowledge information system were analyzed using a linkage matrix.
    •  The protocol of estrus synchronization developed at NDRI was tested at field level through farmer participatory field trials and a success rate of 68.1% was recorded
    •  The new extension approach of FLS was validated as a tool for transfer of reproductive management technologies and 44% gain in knowledge was obtained
