The department of Microbiology was established in the year 1981 as the first department in the entire state to impart advance teaching in this area with strong research/development backup. During the past two decades, this department has contributed significantly in the area of microbial diversity and biofertilization, mushroom biology and technology through various programmes funded by DBT, ICAR, NHB (Govt. of India). The department has a good collection of microbial germplasm – Cyanobacteria, Azospirillum, Azotobacter, Bacillus, Pleurotus, Agaricus, Tricholoma etc. In recent times, a constant effort for the domestication of mushroom through training, demonstration etc. by the department has resulted in livelihood improvement of poor section of the society of this state.
