Research Activities

Following are the research activities of the institute:

  • Collection, maintenance and evaluation of germplasm of major arid zone crops i.e. chickpea, and wheat for conserving indigenous genetic diversity
  • Maintenance of crossing block of wheat and chickpea for hybridization program
  • Development of durable resistant variety(s)
  • Breeding for durable rust resistance in bread wheat 
  • Breeding for drought/heat tolerance
  • Study of filial generations of wheat, chickpea crops
  • Preliminary yield trials of wheat, chickpea crops (A-trials)
  • Regular yield trials (B-trials) of wheat, chickpea crops
  • Micro Wheat Yield Trials (MTWV) Normal & Short of wheat and chickpea crops
  • National Uniform Yield trials (NUYT) of wheat, chickpea crops
  • Development of long headed mono tiller wheat variety 
  • Evaluation of international trials/ nurseries of bread wheat, chickpea crops
  • Screening of advanced wheat materials against rusts in field
  • Population dynamics of aphids in wheat crop 
  • Estimation of wheat yield losses due to aphid attack
  • Sowing date trial of wheat, chickpea crops
  • Response of seed rate on the yield of advance lines
  • Effect of different levels of fertilizer on the yield of wheat
  • Seed rate studies at farmer fields 
  • Studying comparative decline in physiological and yield parameters by high temperature stress 
  • Production of breeder’s nucleus seed (BNS) and pre-basic seed of wheat advance lines of wheat and  chickpea crops
