Main Sugarcane Research Station,

Junagadh Agricultural University

Kodinar

Year of Establishment : 1958  
Introduction:
The research work on sugarcane was initiated at Agricultural Research Station, Kodinar and Vyara in the Ex. Bombay State during 1958-59. In 1972, when Gujarat Agricultural University came into existence, the technical control of the sugarcane research was at Junagadh. All these research schemes were shifted to Kodinar, in Junagadh district during June-2000. Kodinar centre of Junagadh Agricultural University is the main sugarcane research station in Gujarat with the mandate to take up multidisciplinary production technology for increasing production in Gujarat. This centre is located at the southern costal belt of South Saurashtra Agro-climatic zone-7, 5 km away from Kodinar city and 136 km away from Junagadh. The total land area of the station is 51.58ha.  
Mandate :
1. To develop early, midlate and late maturing sugarcane varieties suitable for this region in respect of yield and quality parameters.
2. To determine appropriate cultural practices in respect of nutrient management, time of planting, spacing, intercropping etc for the
    recommended varieties.
3. Testing centre for oilseeds crops like Groundnut, Sesamum etc.
4. To conduct Locational trials of bajara and wheat.
5. Maintenance and evaluation of Germplasn of sugarcane.
6. Seed production programme of all released variety of sugarcane.
Objectives :
  • To evaluate the Coimbatore canes under different agro-climatic conditions.
  • To work out appropriate sugarcane based cropping system under different farming situation.
  • To develop sugarcane varieties resistance to salinity, drought and water logging conditions.
  • To develop production technology under limited water, poor quality of irrigation water and saline soils of costal area.
  • To identify the pest and diseases its nature of damage and to work out its control measures.
  • To screen the most stable sugarcane variety for south saurashtra Agro-climatic zone of Gujarat.
  • To find out the nutrient and water requirement of promising varieties of sugarcane.
  • To develop the economical agronomic package of practices for sugarcane crop.
