INDIAN INSTITUTE OF PULSES RESEARCH was established in the year 1993,

Indian Institute of Pulses Research (IIPR) is a national institute established by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) to carry out basic strategic and applied research on major pulse crops. Besides generating basic knowledge and material, the Institute also develops appropriate production and protection technologies, production and supply of breeder seeds of improved varieties, demonstration and transfer of technologies and strategic coordination of pulse research through wide network of testing centers across the country.

BRIEF HISTORY

Before metamorphosing into its present incarnation in 1993, the Institute has started its journey as All India Coordinated Pulses Improvement Project (AICPIP) at Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), New Delhi in 1966.Later in 1978, its headquarters was shifted to the then Regional Station of IARI at Kanpur under the name of Project Directorate (Pulses). It was further elevated as Directorate of Pulses Research (DPR) in 1984 and became an independent entity under the direct control of ICAR. The AICPIP was trifurcated into three coordinated projects on chickpea, pigeonpea and MULLaRP (mungbean, urdbean, lentil, lathyrus, rajmash and fieldpea) to provide focused attention on each crop. Since 1993, the Institute is playing a key role in strengthening the nutritional security and sustenance of soil health.

In addition, screening facilities against major insect pests and diseases of pulse crops have been developed. Rainout shelter to screen genotypes against drought, well-equipped laboratories, medium-term germplasm storage, weather observatory, library, seminar hall, farmers guesthouse, museum, etc., have been created. The computer cell provides facilities for database management, documentation and statistical analyses. The library houses exhaustive literature on pulse crops besides CAB abstracting on CD-ROM. The museum depicts pulse technologies developed by the Institute to visitors. The Institute has 55 highly qualified and competent scientists working in various divisions, besides 71 technical, 29 administrative and 70 supporting personnel.
