ICAR-Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research
The Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research (IISR) owes its origin to the recommendations of the erstwhile The Indian Central Sugarcane Committee for advanced research on all aspects of sugarcane cultivation except breeding and coordination of sugarcane researches across the country. The foundation stone of the institute was laid on 16 February 1952 under the administrative control of the Indian Central Sugarcane Committee. It was brought directly under the Government of India on 1 January 1954 and later on it was entrusted to the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) on 1 April 1969 along with other agriculture based research institutions.
The Institute is an ISO 9001 accredited agency and has three regional stations for nationwide coverage of its activities.
