 Forest Soil & Land Reclamation Division


Mandate :

The Forest Soil & Land Reclamation (FSLR) Division was incepted as Soil Section under Silviculture Division in 1938. The Soil Section was upgraded to Forest Soils Branch and shifted to the new building, where it is now located since 1972. The Divsion is devoted  to  the  research  on  physical, chemical  and  mineralogical  properties of various forest soils.  The  main mandate  of the  Division  is  sustainable management of  soil  resources and  bio rejuvenation  of  waste  lands. The Division has 04 Scientists and 13 technical and other staff. The Division published 04 papers in International, 27 in National reviewed journals and 13 technical reports in the review period. The FSLR Division carried out 12 ICFRE funded and 04 externally funded projects in the review period. In addition, the Scientists of the FSLR Division are involved in 07 other projects of FRI in collaboration with other Divisions such as Pathology, Extension, Silviculture. The  findings  of  the research projects are  generally  academic  in  nature The  Scientists  in  the  Division need  to give  highest  priority to publication  of  their  research  results and reports  in  the  journals of  high  impact  factor in  order  to  maintain  high  academic  standard. Lack  of  sufficient  number  of  Scientists  with  supporting  research  staff  is  the  main  constraint  in the  Division. There is an urgent need for posting of additional staff.
