About the department/Section

Directorate of Research of the University was established in March 1975 with mandate of Planning, Execution, Monitoring, Co-ordination, Evaluation and Impact Assessment of Research Programmes across the Faculties to cater the research needs of two agro-climatic zones of state of Uttar Pradesh namely, South-Western Semi- Arid and Central plain zones covering 22 districts of five administrative divisions viz.; Lucknow, Kanpur, Allahabad, Aligarh and Agra. The University has a long history of significant research contributions made by the well established faculties, Research Sections, Regional Stations and research farms and developed more than 295 high yielding varieties in cereals, oilseeds, pulses, vegetables and other important crops.

University have four Research Sections (Rabi cereals, oilseeds, legumes and vegetables), four crop units (paddy, sorghum, cotton & tobacco), five Regional Research Stations (Kalai Aligarh, Mainpuri, Hazratpur-Firozabad, Daleepneger-Kanpur, Saini–Kaushambi,) and 14 farms (research and seed multiplication).

Regional Research Stations/Sub-Stations:

RRS, Kalai -Aligarh Soil & water management and verification function of cereals, oilseed and pulses.
RRS, Daleepnagar-Kanpur Researches on reclamation, management and utilization of salt affected soil, agro forestry and animal nutrition.
Research Sub Station, Mainpuri Groundnut improvement and development of its agro-techniques with verification function of maize, bajra, wheat, pulses and oilseed.
Research Sub Station, Hazratpur-Firozabad Researches on soil & water conservation, agro-forestry
Research Sub Station, Saini-Kaushambi Verification functions of cereals, pulses and oilseed crop and cropping system.

Major Research Functions:

The University has done good research work in the management of saline and alkaline soils and made out good recommendations for their reclamation. These need to be spread quickly as over one lac ha area in this region is rendered unproductive due to salinity and alkalinity. The University has also given out good cropping sequences for the different agro-climatic zones. Strong research-extension linkages need to be established. There seems to be little attention to researches on sustainability e.g., microbial fertilizers, production of vermi-compost, organic fertilizers, Bio agents, micro-irrigation, bio-technology research, post harvest management and value addition, market intelligence and use of modern technologies in social sciences. Tremendous scope exists in value addition research in fruit and vegetable crops. The research programmes in the university can be broadly classified into four major areas:

Basic or Fundamental Research:

The research activities include understanding of the natural system and biological relationships of natural resources, the biological processes of agricultural production, etc., basically to generate information and add to the knowledge data base. The research carried out by faculties and students serves to strengthen the intellectual capabilities of the scientists for further applied research.

Applied research:

It includes the research activities aimed at providing solutions to the field problems of the line departments of the State Government and farmers, which is one of the major mandates of the University.A team of’ multi-disciplinary scientists at the Zonal Agricultural Research Stations and AICRPs/non-plan schemes of university carries out most of these applied research activities.

Need-based research:

Need-based research is being done mostly through the ad-hoc research projects. Several projects funded under ICAR, UPCAR, RKVY, CST and other funding agencies are being taken up by the University for solving need based specific problems related to agriculture and allied activities in the State.

Operational Research:

For shortening the gap in the release of the technology by directly working with the farmers the University organizes research activities at farmers fields. They also help in evolving site-specific modifications and refinement of technology as well as obtaining feedback for planning further research programmes.

Research Management:

Research in the University is managed by the Directorate of Agricultural experiment Station with a network of technical, administrative and scientific personnel spread across the jurisdiction area of the University.
