The Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research has a well developed farm with elaborated and proper connectivity of roads. The total area of the farm is 186.5 ha and area under cultivation is 125.16 ha to conduct research experiments. The farm is equipped with 13 tube-wells with interconnected underground irrigation channels, 7 tractors with implements and machines for various field operations and 8 pairs of bullocks. To manage this farm and its resources, the institute has an independent farm section which facilitates research activities by providing logistic support including inputs, farm equipments and other resources for field experimentation. To conduct all field experiments there is a need of a certain area of land, labourers, irrigation, farm inputs and other resources like farm machinery, tools and bullock pairs. The farm section arranges all these resources, maintains and provides to different scientific divisions as per their requirement. Apart from this the farm section maintains the entire farm and keeps it presentable by cleaning road sides, bunds and channels properly. This unit is also engaged to generate revenue by producing quality seed of sugarcane and other produces like wheat, paddy, mustard, gram etc.
To develop into a well equipped, scientifically managed modern research farm.
To maximize production, productivity and profit of margin, reduce the cost of cultivation of sugarcane as well as other crops grown at institute and face the challenges of labour scarcity through mechanization and operational precision.
To provide Logistic support for conducting field experiments
- To assist the research activities and field experimentations by proving all logistic support required for smooth functioning of the institute.
- All resources related with the farm activities are arranged by the farm section to facilitate the research experiments.
- To assist research activities the farm section manages field preparation and arranges irrigation facilities.
- To keep farm presentable.
