To make Indian agriculture resilient to climate change through development and application of adaptation and mitigation technologies.
1•Phenotyping, physiological evaluation and genetic improvement of irrigated crops (rice, wheat, chickpea) for heat and drought stresses.
2•Monitoring of GHG emissions through flux towers/field measurement in irrigated rice-wheat production system in the IGP (New Delhi) and rice-rice system in south-east peninsula (Aduthurai).
3• Adaptation and mitigation through improved crop management, enhanced water productivity and nutrient use efficiency; and carbon and nutrient budgeting in rice-wheat system.
4•Strengthening real-time data capture on crop health through Satellite Data Reception System and integrate the output to agro-advisories.
5•Integrated crop modelling for wheat and rice for impact assessment and indentifying adaptation strategies at regional level for near and long-term downscaled scenario.
6•Technology demonstration on farmers fields and capacity building.
