IIPR-RS, Khordha (Odisha) is established in an area of 29.395 acres on 18 January 2020 following signing of MoU between Govt. of Odisha and ICAR (IIPR, Kanpur) to cater to the need of research on Pulses exclusively grown in humid region including Urdbean, Mungbean and Pigeonpea. The region comes under Eastern Ghats hot moist sub-humid eco sub-region (Agro Ecological Sub Region of ICAR), East Coast Plain & Hill Region (Zone XI) of Agro-Climatic Zone of Planning Commission and East and South Eastern Coastal Plain Zone (OR-4) of Agro Climatic Zone of NARP. This Station falls under Khordha district of Odisha. It is situated at latitude of 20.188 N, longitude of 85.622 E and an altitude of 75 metres above MSL.
The bioclimatology of the District Khordha is much influenced for the short radial distance from the Bay of Bengal and presences of a huge water body like the Chilika Lake. The district enjoys normal 1408 mm (68.4 number of rainy days) with maximum and minimum temperature 42.2 degree Celsius and 11.1 degree Celsius, respectively. Most of the rain is received during SW Monsoon (June-Sept,1056.2 mm) while rainfall received through NE monsoon (Oct-Dec, 204.7 mm) and winter (Jan-Feb, 36.7 mm) are scanty /deficient. The mean relative Humidity ranges from 46% to 89%. Since it is situated in the East & Southeastern coastal plain this agro-climatic zone blessed with sandy-loam, loam, clay-loam and clayey soil in varied agro-ecosystem with mostly acidic in nature with low in organic carbon. The major kharif crops of this region are rice, urdbean and pigeonpea, and in rabi season rice, urdbean, mungbean, horsegram and cowpea.
Mungbean, Urdbean And Pigeonpea.
