Berhampur University signs MoU with BARC

Jointly study positive impact of radiation on plants
The Berhampur University (Bhanja Bihar) and Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) Mumbai have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to study positive impacts of radiation on plants.
This project would experiment on bringing in positive mutational changes in different plant breeds that are beneficial to humans. This project hopes to bring in genetic mutant changes in major crop breeds to make them more productive, pest resistant and environment-friendly.
