RESEARCH MANDATE

Identification of stress tolerant genotypes through mass
scale screening (exotic and indigenous germplasm) for
enhancing crop productivity of salt prone water deficit areas



Understanding of physiological mechanisms/ traits, which
confer sensitivity / tolerance for using in a breeding
programme to evolve high yielding stress tolerant genotypes.



Exogenous application of growth regulators in different
crop plants for better crop productivity under abiotic stresses.
