The Thrust Areas of Research of this Division are:

Basic
  1. Inheritance studies on red rot resistance
  2. Characterization of Saccharum using molecular markers
  3. Molecular cytogenetics of Saccharum
  4. Anther culture to develop haploids
  5. Identification and cloning of sugarcane specific promoters and genes

 

Strategic
  1. Developing sugarcane cultivars against biotic and abiotic stresses through genetic transformation
  2. Development of interspecific and intergeneric hybrids of Saccharum
  3. National Hybridization programme
  4. Collection, conservation, characterization and utilization of sugarcane germplasm

 

Applied
  1. Breeding sugarcane varieties with improved productivity and adaptability for different agro climatic zones of the country
  2. Breeder seed production
