Pratibha’s interview on Doordarshan

Listen to Pratibha discuss chemical ecology and her work on the Methylobacterium species associated with traditionally cultivated rice varieties here! The talk (in Manipuri) was aimed at the farmers in Manipur. Pratibha is currently testing whether Methylobacterium spp. isolated from rice are beneficial to the host plant, and hopes that this project is ultimately useful for agriculture and to preserve the traditional rice landraces in the North-east.
