Embryo Transfer Technology – Varudi, Amreli

Overview

ET project (Embryo Transfer Technology Project) is very highly sophisticated technical project. It enhances genetic up gradation of the population by augmenting progeny size to many fold of the female of high genetic merit, thereby helping to produce large number of off springs of favorable gene combination for given trait. This project if employed in the combination of PT, can help attain genetic up gradation 3 to 4 times faster than conventional tools employed for production enhancement.

Objectives

  • To get maximum number of high pedigreed cows/buffaloes from high yielding cows/buffaloes.
  • To reduce birth of low potential cows to conventional breeding practices adopted by farmers.
  • To conserve indigenous germplasm in the form of embryo.

Benefits

As other breed improvement projects this project will help improve the productivity of milch animals of the state.

Achievements

The highly sophisticated laboratory is under construction at Varudi, Amreli.
