Crop Improvement
Eighteen hybrids/varieties have been released for various agro-ecologies.
Seven varieties of wheat have been released and notified.
Yielded more than check varietiesGave high yield over check varieties. In addition tobeing resistant to brown rust, it showed betterresistance than checks against yellow rust. It alsoshowed high degree of resistance to Karnal Buntand immunity against flag smutPossessed higher degree of resistance to yellowand brown rusts and flag smut in comparison tochecks. And found resistant to 78S84 race of yellowrust to which PBW 343 has now become susceptibleYielded higher than UP 2425, PBW 373 and Raj3765. It has more protein content, higher loaf volume(12.21%), (572cc) and much better bread-makingquality. Besides better nutritional quality, showedhigh degree of resistance to yellow rust, brown rustand flag smutYielded higher than Lok 1. It showed resistance toleaf and stem rustsIt out-yielded all check varieties in the central partsof the country. It exhibited high magnitude of adultplant resistance to leaf and stem rusts. It is anearly-maturing variety with acceptable grain qualityIt exhibited high beta-carotene content, high proteincontent, high sedimentation value (35ml), and highcontents of iron, manganese, copper and zinc tomake it a very good durum wheat. It showeddesirable pasta cooking quality.

 Registration of genetic stocks
Ten new genetic stocks of wheat have been registered by the PlantGermplasm Registration Committee.To mitigate the threat posed by the stem rustvirulence Ug99, 318 wheat varieties were screenedat its hot spot Njoro (Kenya). The screeningrevealed that 78 genotypes were resistant to Ug99.Four wheat varieties HD 2781, DL 153-2, NI 5439and HI 8498(d) have been reconfirmed for theirresistance to Ug 99.
Dual-purpose barley RD 2715 has beenidentified for release in Madhya Pradesh,Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Kota and Udaipur divisionof Rajasthan and Jhansi division of Uttar Pradeshfor timely sown, irrigated conditions. This showedresistance to yellow rust.
Five hybrids, four composites and twoquality protein maize (QPM) hybrids have beenreleased for different agro-ecological zones of thecountry.
A new multicut forage sorghumhybrid CSH 24MF (UTMCH 1302) has beenidentified for release in all forage zones of India.It has lower HCN content (90-100 ppm), and isresistant to anthracnose, zonate leaf spot and greyleaf spot, and is tolerant to stem borer and shoot-fly.Dual-purpose hybrid sorghum CSH 25 has beenidentified for cultivation in
