Devam Kakoty presented his project entitled ‘ Termite Soil -Its Quality and Effect on growth of Rice’. The observation of the project is that ‘ Termite soil can hold more moisture, has more organic matter and nutrients resulting in better growth of rice crop in an eco-friendly procedure’.


Besides the national level science congress, the project was also selected for presentation in the 99th Indian Science Congress held at Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, Bhubaneswar from 3rd – 7th January .
