Directorate of Wheat Research (DWR)

Directorate of Wheat Research (DWR) through All India Coordinated Wheat and Barley Improvement Project (AICW & BIP) in its 51st year of service, is coordinating the multidisciplinary and multilocational activities of varietal improvement, resource management and crop protection technologies across the diverse ecosystems for increasing and stabilizing the barley production. As a nodal institute, DWR facilitates planning, exchange of experimental material, monitoring the trial/activities, data compilation and documentation. At present 120 scientists from 31 funded centers and 174 scientists from 123 non-funded co-operating centers are carrying out the planned activities. In addition to this, as a key component of national steering Committee, the DWR plays a crucial role in formulating strategies to ensure sustainable improvement in the productivity of Rice-Wheat System. Adoption of molecular approach to complement conventional wheat improvement programme is one of the recent initiatives taken up by DWR through a research network project. Research capabilities and facilities are being strengthened through various network projects to enhance output of competent research centers under AICW & BIP.


Agri Bioinformatics Promotion Program

Department of Information Technology sponsored project to raise awareness about bio-informatics application and augmenting skills for its implementation in agriculture research and crop productivity improvement is underway at various institutes across India. The Major focus is on molecular characterization of plants to come out with cures for disease pathogens, development of algorithm for gene annotation, a database on Indian IPR wheat genotypes et al. The participating institutes include S.D. Agriculture University, Gujarat, Central Plantation Crops Research Institute Kasargod, Kerala, Indira Gandhi Krishi Viswavidyala Raipur Chatisgarh, Assam Agriculture University, Jorhat and Directorate of Wheat Research, Karnal, Haryana.
