IIPR-RC, Bikaner (Rajasthan) is established in June, 2019 to cater the need of research on arid legumes. The region comes under Agro-climatic zone IC (Hyper arid partially irrigated Western Plain) of Rajasthan which occupies 7.70 mha physiographical area. The Centre is situated at 28.07 0N latitude, 73.32 0E longitude and 225 m altitude in an area of 70 Hectare.
The objectives of the centre are to cater the needs of pulse growing farmers of arid region of India, develop location specific technologies for enhanced pulses production, large scale quality seed production, characterization/screening and evaluation of germplasm, and generation of breeding material of pulses for the arid agroecosystem, demonstration and transfer of technologies, and coordination of pulses research through networking of testing centres across the zone particularly in Rajasthan State.
