Satellite Laboratories of DBT-NECAB
The satellite laboratories have been established with an aim to disseminate technologies developed by DBT-NECAB, especially bioinput (biofertilizer, biopesticide) production and tissue culture technology and for the promotion of organic agriculture.
Earlier satellite centres have been effectively running at five KVKs (Kamrup, Nalbari, Barpeta, Nagaon, Dibrugarh), Biswanath College of Agriculture and one NGO called Seuj Satirtha under KASS (Dibrugarh). Presently, five new satellites laboratories were established at:
Nagaland University, Medziphema, Campus, Nagaland
Central Agricultural University, Iroisemba, Imphal, Manipur
School of Postgraduate studies, CAU, Umiam, Meghalaya
College of Agriculture, Lembucherra, Tripura

Till date more than ₹75 lakhs have been funded for the development of infrastructure and around ₹54 lakhs for the purchase of machinery for the center. Production and additional fund of ₹15 Lakhs has been provided to upgrade one of the existing laboratories.
