    1. Medicinal Plants and its health benefits: The search for plants with health properties are in progress at present and an in-depth research will be carried out to understand its medicinal properties and its application.  Read more… 

    2. Tea: Research about the factors that are affecting the quality of tea processing like cultural factors such as standard of plucking, pruning, irrigation, shading, manuring, pest management and Atmospheric factors such as Temperature, Humidity of air, Intensity of sunshine, Rainfall and Soil management factors such as soil moisture, soil PH, soil temp, drainage to improve the quality (Colour, brightness, strength and aroma) of orthodox green & black tea production.

    3. Essential oil from Green Tea: Tea leaves have Antioxidant  properties and the aroma of the tea is due to the presence of the oil present in it. An intense research to derive the oil systematically without the loss of energy and through maximum utilisation of available resources with zero waste is the aspect of research.

    1. Permaculture : Permanent agriculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. Fundamental principles of permaculture is to work with nature not against, mimic natural patterns and principles, encourage diversity, use of local resources, conservation of soil and water and cause minimal disturbance to nature, We are implementing a model project at The Green Gardens farm in Wayanad.
