Research Objectives 

Our research efforts are directed towards applying innovative methods to deliver qualitative and robust seeds with strong adaptability to various regions in the country. At JKAL, our strong R&D team works towards meeting the challenges and requirements involved in plant breeding and ensure healthy seeds with improved quality and higher resistance to diseases like Downy Mildew and stalk rots.

The plant breeding R&D facility works with the following objectives:

Objective oriented development in crops resulting in superior hybrids.

Ensuring development and maturation of various crops.

Working towards disease resistance in cotton, maize, mustard and wheat crops.

Effective maintenance of breeding, breeder seed production and supply.

Standardisation of production techniques of new pipe line hybrids.
