Basic and strategic research on management of abiotic stresses in crop plants, livestock, fishes and soil microorganisms
Impart quality education in abiotic stress management and emerge as a Global Centre of Excellence
Repository of information on abiotic stresses, mitigation strategies and acceptable policies for knowledge sharing and capacity building
Develop linkages for holistic management of abiotic and biotic stress factors
A six-point interlinked strategy is being adopted to enhance efficiency and effectiveness of research endeavours at the institute. It is concentrated on defining of target environments, adaptive techniques, mitigation strategies, policy support in addition to exploitation of synergies through networking. Ultimately these will upscale the institute to a 'Centre of Excellence' for research and education on abiotic stressors.
