IHAR was founded in 1951 for research in breeding and seed production of major field crops.

The current mission of IHAR is to develop:

  • theoretical principles and research methodologies related to germplasm conservation, enhancement and utilization in breeding of field crops,
  • seed science and seed production,
  • collection and preservation of plant germplasm resources for breeding and research programmes.

Research agenda is focused on:

  • identification of genetic sources of the important agronomic traits,
  • studies on their genetic control and methods of utilization,
  • research on the mechanisms controlling crop resistance to diseases, pests and environmental stresses,
  • application of biotechnological methods in plant breeding and gene transformation.
