Research is carried out on important hill crops including small millets and under utilized crops. The work involves collection and evaluation of genetic resources, development of high yielding, early maturing varieties for different agro-ecological situations, testing of segregating populations and advanced breeding material under international, national and zonal programs, popularization of varieties through front line demonstration and mini kits, and breeder seed production of improved varieties. New crops are introduced based on their potential. So far more than 10,000 germplasm lines have been evaluated for different characters and six varieties have been released: one each in foxtail millet (PRK1) and buckwheat (PRB1), and two each in grain amaranth (PRA1, PRA2) and rice bean (PRR1, PRR2). Based on zonal and multi location testing under hill conditions 10 varieties developed by the University at Pantnagar have been recommended.
