Germplasm Collection

IIVR facilitates multiplication, conservation and evaluation of vegetable germplasm in collaboration with NBPGR, New Delhi. Currently, IIVR holds 5320 germplasm accessions of 23 vegetables. Vibrant pre-breeding programs are carried out to continuously augment the germplasm repository of vegetables. Germplasm holdings are enhanced through regular introductions from  international genetic resource centers and indigenous collections. Germplasm resources available at IIVR are exchanged with the members of  national agriculture research system (NARS) on request.
