Dr. D.G. Kadam, Associate Professor and HOD Microbiology, has been recognized as research guide by Solapur University. Three students have completed their Ph.D. degrees and four students are presently working for their Ph.D. degrees in this research center. The department holds an excellent record of university rankers, meritorious students and three University Gold Medal winners. The department of Microbiology has a spacious laboratory with computers, E-learning, L.C.D projector, internet and smart-board facilities. The department has a very good collection of e-books. The department had organized two National Conferences, one workshop and one seminar and Poster Exhibitions on Biofarming, GM foods, Cancer awareness.
Department organized a one day National conference on Microbial Technology for Sustainable Development (MTSD) on 2nd February 2018. Department of Microbiology has participated in collaboration with N.S.S Department of D.B.F.Dayanand College of Arts and Science, Solapur in “Leprosy Detection Campaign” held on 1st September 2017. Department of Microbiology has contributed in Biocomposting plant in college and prepared Culture for Biocomposting. The department organizes guest lectures of eminent persons in the Microbiology field to update both the teacher and student knowledge. The department organized guest lectures on Organ Donation, Tuberculosis and Leprosy detection campaign. Such activities are regularly organized by the department through ‘Microbiology Club’ a platform meant for student activities. The department conducts community oriented programs such as “LAB To LAND” and water testing and awareness of prophylactic measures regarding safe drinking water for the society. The department has viable and active MoU’s with industry and educational institutions. Department celebrates various days like Science day, Pasteur Day, Teacher’s Day and Guru Pournima etc. Every year department organizes regularly Parent Teacher Meet. Every year study tours to visit to various industries and research institutes are organized.
The students of microbiology department actively participating in Avishkar Research Festival organized by Solapur University, Solapur. The department regularly publishes a wall paper viz. ‘Microscopica’ contributed mainly by the students. The department has its own Website that is regularly used for publishing important events, programmes and other related information.

Lab to Land

Lab to Land programme is innovative programme of the Government of India for promoting the use of sceince and technology in agriculture sector. This programme was launched in 1979. The Department of Microbiology runs LAB to LAND programme at college level. The main objective of this programme was to aware the farmers about the benefits of biofertilizers and biopesticides and its use. In this programme microbiology students have used microbiological techniques and isolated various microbial strains from rhizosphere viz. Azotobacter, Rhizobium etc. and produced product like biofertilizers. Biofertilizers carefully and aseptically carried to actual crop land in solapur region and applied in front of farmers. Farmers counselled by students about the beneficial roles of biofertilizers.
Biofertilizers play a great and significant role in improving soil fertility by fixing atmospheric nitrogen under free living condition and in association with plant root nodules.
These microbes solubilize insoluble soil phosphates and produce plant growth substance in the soil.
Biofertilizers are very important source for augmenting the nutrient supplies for plants by virtue of fixing atmospheric nitrogen and solubilizing/mobilizing soil nutrients; they are accepted as key component of the Integrated Plant Nutrient System
