Coimbatore, Apr 20 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Agriculural University (TNAU) obtained its first Patent granted by the Intellectual Property Rights of India for an invention of a device to remove eggs of pulse beatle from seeds.

In a press release here, TNAU vice chancellor C Ramasamy said the device had been invented by Professor of Agricultural Entomology Dr S Mohan.

Dr Ramasamy said the device is the first of its kind in the country and will be useful to prevent losses during storage.

Pulse beetle damage is a major constraint in production, he added.
