Dry Land Research Sub Station, Dhiansar

The primary mandate of the Dryland Research Sub-Station is to improve and stabilize the crop production capabilities of dryland farmers which can be attained by achieving the following objectives:




  • By evolving simple dryland technologies.
  • By stabilizing production through alternate crop production technology to match weather aberrations.
  • By optimizing the use of natural resources.
  • By evolving suitable agronomic practices for different crops of the region.
  • Identification of suitable crops and their varieties.
  • Identification of suitable cropping system including agro-forestry
  • Integrated Nutrient management
  • Efficient rain water collection and its utilization
  • Externally Funded Projects
