The ICAR-National Research Centre for Grapes under Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi was established on 18th January 1997 at Manjri, Pune, with the following mandate

  • Strategic and applied research on safe grape production and productivity.
  • Transfer of technology and capacity building of stakeholders for enhanced and sustained production of grapes.
  • National Referral Laboratory for Food Safety and Pesticide residue in fruits.


Based on this mandate the research is conducted with the following objectives:

  • To collect, characterize, evaluate and catalogue Vitis germplasm
  •  To maintain core field germplasm with wide genetic base
  • To develop varieties with economically important traits for table, wine, raisins and juice.
  • To develop appropriate and economically viable agro techniques for quality grape production
  • To sustain the productivity and quality through management of biotic and abiotic stresses
  • To develop technologies with minimal dependence on agro chemical inputs
  • To develop appropriate pre and post harvest technologies for extended shelf-life and processing into value added products
  • To develop strategic alliances for research and transfer of technologies

For this the following five research programmes have been identified in Vision 2050

  • Climate resilient viticulture
  • Precision Viticulture
  • Plant health and vineyard ecosystem management
  • Value Addition and new generation products

  • Mechanisation for grape production
