About Us

The Department of Plant Physiology came into existence in 1987. The major research thrust areas of the Department include etiology of mango malformation, mechanism of ion transport in plants, somatic embryogenesis in cereals, tree biology and molecular biology of photosynthesis. The Department is also trying to develop techniques of micro-nutrient application in agricultural crops and development of new cultivars for mass propagation through tissue culture.

Mandate:
