Research Activities

Crop improvement 

  1. Strengthening of genetic resources which include collection, evaluation and maintenance of germplasm for making use in breeding programmes on pulse crops.
  2. Development of newly genetic materials of pulses for developing genotypes with high stable yield, better grain quality and resistance to various biotic and abiotic stresses.
  3. Testing of newly developed genotypes under various categories of trials such as PET, SSVT, LSVT, IVT etc.
  4. Seed multiplication of different varieties on large scale to cater to the need of farmers and various seed producing agencies.
  5. Dissemination of the newly developed technologies on the farmer's field through demonstrations.

Crop production

  1. To find out suitable pulse based intercropping system.
  2. Integrated Nutrient management in pigeonpea.
  3. Evaluation of pigeonpea varieties in rabi season under different geometry
