Sudhamoy Mandal

Designation: 
Senior Scientist (Plant Pathology)
Division/Section: 
CHES, Bhubaneswar
Specialisation: 
Plant Pathology and Agricultural Biotechnology
Qualification: 
Ph D (IIT Kharagpur), Fulbright Scholar (2012-13)
Research Accomplishments: 

1. Pathogen-derived elicitors for inducing resistance: A procedure has been standardized for preparation of pathogen-derived elicitor from the cell wall Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici and also from the culture filtrate. As the pathogen-derived elicitors have specific receptors in plants, these elicitors may be used for inducing resistance against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici.

2. Use of hairy roots for studying plant-pathogen interaction: Elicitation of hairy root cultures of tomato with different elicitors evoked same response as was observed in normal roots.

3. Induction of systemic acquired resistance through elicitors: The results indicated that the induced resistance observed in tomato against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici and Ralstonia solanacearum might be a case of systemic acquired resistance. This is a novel endeavour for development of biomolecules which may lead to avoidance of pesticides.

4. Oxidative burst as indicator of plant susceptibility/resistance to pathogen

5. Establishing the biochemical basis for high susceptibility of tomato plants (cv Arka Saurabh) at flowering stage to Fusarium wilt

6. Accumulation of phenolics and lignin in high amounts, together with higher level activity of major defense enzymes in response to the elicitors, may bolster eggplants in mounting practical and effective resistance against Ralstonia solanacearum, the devastating wilt pathogen.

7. Results indicate that increased level of ROS production coupled with more efficient antioxidative system, lower rate of lipid peroxidation and high lignin deposition in cell wall may contribute to the resistance of tomato plants to Ralstonia solanacearum.

Research Accomplishments: 

Participatory works and technology i.Management of gall midge through the identification of gall midge resistant rice varieties for desired characters and further popularization at district level. This work fetched seed of Mahamaya rapidly to farmers through seed exchange method in the district. ii.Development of MAT and BAT based IPM module for fruit flies in cucurbits and mango. The technology has brought remarkable impact in lives of tribal people in naxal affected region of Orissa. iii.Field level execution of HWT of mango to reduce post harvest losses due to anthracnose and fruit fly and development of long distance marketing channel for mango. iv.Introduction and revival of lac cultivation through participatory mode in village panchayats leading to environment protection and monetary gains to village institutions and farmers. The achievement of this work encouraged INRG to start work in the district. v.Evaluation and development of single line trellis system for efficient pest control in bitter gourd. The technology has been up taken by ACRIP-veg. for country wide testing. vi.Participatory refinement and implementation of IPM, using Trichoderma, Bt, neem product, mustard trap crop and poison bait in cabbage. The work has led to reduction in pesticide application especially for cut worm control. vii.Participatory refinement and implementation of IPM, using Trichoderma, Bt, neem product, mustard trap crop and poison bait in tomato. The work has led to reduction in pesticide application especially for cut worm control. viii.Identified Arka Neelachal Kesari as fruit fly mango variety in coastal belt of Orissa. ix.Developed BSFB trapping protocol. x.Quantification of field appropriateness of IPM tools of brinjal shoot and fruit borer in farmers’ perspective: 1) field efficacy of various alternative tools, 2) their economic efficiency and 3) reasons for non adoption of alternative tools as against pesticides. The work led to understand the farmers’ compulsion to use pesticide in place of alternatives. xi. Assessment of IPM practices in rice ecosystem and factors of non adoption of low and no cost Agro techniques in rice at farmers’ fields in 10 villages. Worked out the impact of method and result demonstration on the adoption of Agro techniques in rice. xii. Pest modeling: The measurement and modeling of losses of cucurbits to fruit flies: “By cohort, compensated” model. The model indicated that fruit fly damage is more than what we see in harvestable fruits in cucurbits. xiii. Area wide pest control: First time quantification of pest control at field level, village level and area wide control of melon fly in bitter gourd using BAT (3% PH).The work certified the IPM concept “ecosystem should be the management unit” Area wide control of fruit fly using bait and lure based IPM of fruit fly in mango. xiv. First report of insect pests from Orissa region: Recorded vine borer in parwal, ants in minor fruits, mango fruit borer in four states and coffee borer in custard apple. xv. BSFB pheromone studies: Pheromone septa evaluation, effect of weather parameters and pest density on trap, lures storage effect and effect of host crop and wind direction on trap catch. xvi. Identification of host plants and natural enemies: Bitter gourd, spine gourd, pointed gourd, watermelon sweet gourd, ridge gourd snake gourd, raw pumpkin fruit and bottle gourd were identified as host plant of D.indica. Apantales taragamae, Perilampus sp.,Trathala flavoorbitalis,Aphanogmus sp nr. figiensis, Phanerotoma hendecasisella and an unknown parasitoids were recovered from field collected larvae of D.indica. xvii. Insecticide evaluation: Against mango leaf cutting weevil: repellent like neem oil (49.09%) and multineem (33.81%) significantly reduced the weevil damage over control (65.06%) but insecticide offered better control (2.88%) than other alternatives. Against the pumpkin fruit borer D. indica under two pandal systems of bitter gourd: spray of Bt, at 10 interval was found to be quite effective and at par with insecticides. Efficacy of all the treatments was reduced 6 to 30.00 percent in covered pandal than single line. xviii. Germplasm / variety screening against insect pests: Screened 13 varieties of mango against thrips and mite, 19 germplasms of pole bean against Helicoverpa armigera, 18 germplasms of cowpea against spotted pod borer, many advance lines of chilli against thrips and mites, many brinjal lines against BSFB, ivy gourd, spine gourd and sweet gourd and parwal against node borer, D. indica and related insect pests. xix. Pest survey and surveillance: Disease and pest surveillance for two years in coastal belt and farmers practice of vegetable insect pests and their management. Constraint analysis on adoption of IPM in vegetables and status of brinjal shoot and fruit borer indicated heavy damage (63.33 %) but most of the farmers (76.67%) use insecticide at 6-7 days interval. the major constraints was the lack of effective control tool (51.66%) and non-effectiveness of insecticides (23.33%). Survey of litchi fruit borer, stone weevil, fruit fly and fruit borer in 4 states for 3 years. Assessed farmers’ felt constraints and research need in aonla production. xx. Vector related studies: Studies indicated that insecticides, botanicals, bio barrier, nylon barrier and additional dose of nutrition failed to prevent papaya from PRSV. The population dynamics of aphid vector indicated that April to June months were safe for papaya planting. xxi. Crop pest interaction studies: Pest incidence in inter-cropping of mango, pest management under organic cultivation of mango and pest incidence as affected by mango canopy load. xxii. Variety development: Have been the part of variety development program. As of now, 5 varieties are released from institute variety release committee. 6 advance lines of fruit and vegetables are waiting for release.
