About the Section:

Kanpur being the oldest centre is actively engaged in research activities in Wheat & Barley with establishment of Section of Economic Botanist (Rabi Cereals) as early as 1905. This activity got further momentum with sanction of breeding for rust resistance in wheat in 1956. Later on, to strengthen the ongoing programme an All India Coordinated Wheat and Barley Improvement Project (AICWBIP) was sanctioned by ICAR New Delhi in 1970. Since then this centre has developed 40 wheat & 31 barley varieties till date for general cultivation under different agro-climatic conditions. Presently following two schemes are running in the section:

  1. Wheat Rust Control Scheme
  2. All India Coordinated Wheat & Barley Research Improvement Project.

Incharge : Dr. H.G. Prakash
