Welcome to National Innovations on Climate Resilient Agriculture, Indian Agricultural Research Institute

Aim:


To make Indian agriculture resilient to climate change through development and application of adaptation and mitigation technologies.

 

Objectives:

 

 

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.
