  2. Breeding for high yield, early maturity, disease and pest resistant varieties/hybrids with better quality of various vegetable crops.
  3. Development of high yielding varieties of onion and garlic with traits suitable for dehydration and export purpose.
  4. Developing improved production and protection technologies in important vegetable crops.
  5. Production of nucleus and breeder seeds of improved varieties and parental lines of hybrid of different vegetable crops.
  6. Providing pure and quality seeds of improved varieties to the farmers in time and at reasonable price.
