• Sugarcane Breeding

Sugarcane breeding mainly deals with work on varietal development. Fuzz and setts are procured from local and exotic sources and tested for their performance under the agro-climatic conditions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The selection process consists of 4 stages which include the fuzz, seedlings, replicated and final varietal trials. The varieties with higher cane tonnage and recovery are selected and released for general cultivation in the farming community.

So far, the institute has released the following varieties.

Three varieties selected at the institute are proposed for varietal approval and will be released for general cultivation.
