Soil and water testing facility is available in the Department of Chemistry and Department of Zoology. In soil testing the elements (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, organic carbon, and micronutrients) are examined from the soil and measured for their "plant available" content within the sample. The basic objective of the soil-testing programme is to give farmers a service leading to better and more economic use of fertilizers and better soil management practices for increasing agricultural production. Soil from the local farm is collected and examined. More than 30 soil samples are tested every year.
The water testing examines the quality of water. Water quality tests will give information about the health of the waterway. By testing water over a period of time, the changes in the quality of the water can be seen. Parameters that may be tested include temperature, pH, turbidity, salinity, nitrates and phosphates, TDS. Water samples from college and local places are collected and examined regularly.
