Central Instrumentation cell

Central Instrumentation cell was initiated at the Agricultural College, Bapatla during 2018. Central Instrumentation Cell is conveniently being divided into five different laboratories comprising of Crop production, Microscopy, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology,Plant Protection and Remote Sensing & GIS laboratory. A total of 57 equipments were installed and distributed in these laboratories for the benefit of M Sc and Ph D students.
