• To develop low cost site-specific production technologies of major and minor field crops.
  • To conduct research on different agronomic practices to increase resource use efficiency without diminishing crop yields.
  • To conduct research on means and methods of mitigating ill effects of biotic and abiotic stresses on major field crops.
  • To start research on alternate high value crops e.g. medicinal plants and spices (Quinoa, Stevia, Fennel, Psyllium, Nigella, Carom, Tulsi and Linseed)
  • To study the agronomic and physiological based measures to minimize the detrimental effects of changing climate on growth, development and yield of major field crops.
  • To promote organic farming in view of ill effects of chemical inputs on human health
