The Plant Breeding R&D objectives are as follows:
Give more emphasis on development and identification of full maturity hybrids in Maize, medium
and mid-early maturity in rice, medium maturity in bajra, early and medium maturity in
wheat high oil content in mustard and big boll size of cotton in Central & South zones.
Fast and objective oriented inbred line development in all crops resulting in superior proprietary
To incorporate downy mildew resistance in Bajra and BLB & Blast resistance in rice,Boll worm
and CLCUV resistance in cotton, downy mildew and stalk rot resistance in maize,rust resistance
in mustard and wheat.
Strengthening Germplasm collection in all mandate crops.
Maintenance Breeding, Breeder Seed Production and Supply.
Standardizing production techniques of new pipe line hybrids.
