About the Karnal Center

The Sugarcane Breeding Institute, Regional Centre, Karnal was established as early as 1932 to act as a liaison with the main Institute at Coimbatore, and with a view to securing first hand knowledge about the performance of various Coimbatore seedlings /canes and their parents under the sub-tropical conditions. This centre acts as a prism through which main Institute at Coimbatore observes and evaluates the behaviour of Co canes under the climatic conditions of North throughout the year.This regional centre has several landmark achievements to its credit.

This Regional Centre is located on the National Highway No.1 about 130 km North of Delhi. The location stands at 29.1-29.50 N and 76.3-77.10 E, at an elevation of 243 m above mean sea level. The climate is sub-tropical with mean maximum temperature ranging between 34-390 C in summer and mean minimum temperature ranging between 6-70C in winter.

Mandate

  • To evaluate sugarcane germplasm under sub-tropical conditions and identify potential donors for charaters of economic importance
  • To conduct inheritance studies in sugarcane varietal crosses for sugar and stalk yield components, biotic and aboitic stresses under sub-tropical conditions of India
  • To evalute sugarcane varieties for North Western Zone of India
  • To produce breeder seed of some elite sugarcane varieties for supplying to sugar mills and famers.

The centre has one Research Programme -

  • DEVELOPMENT OF SUGARCANE VARIETIES AS WELL AS CROP PRODUCTION AND PROTECTION TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE NORTH WESTERN ZONE with 13 Projects under this programme

Developed a well equipped Sugarcane Physiology laboratory at ICAR-SBI,RC, Karnal

A Sugarcane Physiology laboratory was built at ICAR-Sugarcane Breeding Institute, Regional Centre, Karnal under the project “Physiological approaches for winter ratooning management in sugarcane under subtropical conditions” funded by RKVY, Haryana (budget 100 Lakh). The lab was inaugurated by the Director, ICAR- Sugarcane Breeding Institute, Coimbatore, Dr. Bakshi Ram on 13.09.2019. To develop this laboratory, 15 instruments viz. atomic spectrophotometer, infra red gas analyzer, chlorophyll fluorescence meter, leaf area meter, chlorophyll meter, pH meters (2 no.), EC meters (2 no.), weighing balances (2 no.), hot air oven, rotary shaker, double distillation unit, online ups (5kva) were purchased with total cost around Rs. 90 lakh. With these instrument we can estimate and identify various physiological and biochemical parameters of sugarcane which impart tolerance under biotic and abiotic stress. These parameters may be used in devising breeding strategies to develop high yielding abiotic and biotic stress tolerant Co -canes and nutrient efficient clones.
