ICAR - National Research Center on Pomegranate

The ICAR-National Research Centre on Pomegranate, Solapur (Maharashtra), was established on June 16, 2005 by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi, as a step to strengthen research and development infrastructure for pomegranate crop. Though Universities and institutes all over the world are having research programmes on pomegranate, this is the only institution working solely on pomegranate. The centre was established to fulfill the growing demand for pomegranate both in domestic and export market through tapping the immense production potential prevailing in the country.I gratefully acknowledge the constant guidance / suggestions of Dr. Trilochan Mohapatra, Secretary DARE and Director General (ICAR), Dr. A.K. Singh, Deputy Director General (Hort.) and Dr. T. Janakiram, Assistant Director General (Hort.I), ICAR, New Delhi. Sincere thanks are due to all the scientists & other staff of this Centre for inputs given by them and their efforts in making the document.
