About Defence Agricultural Research Laboratory DLS
The agricultural research in DRDO had its beginning with the establishment of a laboratory in Leh with a technical cell at Almora in April 1961, under the aegis of Indian Council of Agricultural Research. This cell was later transferred to DRDO in 1962 as Agricultural Research Unit (ARU). Field stations were opened in the remote border areas of Auli (3142 m) Pithoragarh (1524 m) and Hawalbagh (1060 m) with headquarters at Almora (1530 m). A transit base was established at Haldwani (333m) to provide logistic support for undertaking research work in difficult areas. Due to increased activities in the Central Himalayas the Unit was redesignated in 1984 as Defence Agricultural Research Laboratory (DARL). The Headquarters of the Laboratory was shifted to Pithoragarh in 1996, with its field stations at Auli (3742 m), Harsil (3243 m), Raiwala(340 m), transit base at Almora (1530 m) and Base at Haldwani (333 m) to facilitate better execution of ongoing programmes. The activities were further extended to Barmer, Rajasthan and Haldwani Cantonment for implementing agrohorticultural programmes.
