Indian Horticultural Research Institute (IIHR) The 55th Foundation Day was celebrated on September 7 at the Hall, ICAR-IIHR in Hessaraghatta, Bangalore, Karnataka. This is a very special day as the country celebrates 75 years of independence as we grow 28 million hectares of horticultural crops in India.

The event was also attended by a number of national and international celebrities. Guests of honor were Ashok Dalway, Chief Executive Officer of the National Rainwater Authority of the Government of India. Dr. AK Singh, DDG (Hort Sisi), New Delhi and Dr. BNS Murti, Director, ICAR-IIHR.

IIHR He has served the country for more than 55 years in the field of horticulture, with the main research center at Hessaraghatta, 263 hectares of Bangalore and two Crisis Vigian Kendras, a regional experimental station in Bubanswar, Orissa, Gonikopal in Kartagu, Kodagu and Tukur districts of Carthage. IIHR has developed more than 170 species and hybrids as well as advanced sustainable production, conservation and post-harvest management technologies.

In fruit crops, the institute has released three varieties Papaya, 5 hybrids in Mango, 3 types Guava, 5 hybrids in Wines, Each one the same Roman, Pineapple, door and fruit of desire. The recently released high-yielding pink meaty Arka Prabhat Papaya Hybrid, Arka Kiran, Red Meat Hybrid Guwava and Arka Sahan, the big globe and small seeds, have a better prospect and are gaining popularity. So far, the institute has produced 60 high-yielding open seed varieties and 15 F1 hybrids in 24 commercial pests and diseases.

Foundation Day Speech by Chief Guest Ashok Dalway. He enlightened the people by talking about the role of horticulture in the Indian economy. During the Foundation Day celebrations, he spoke about nutrition, micronutrients and macronutrients. Horticulture spoke about how great it is to provide good health and proper nutrition for our people.

In 2006 we were now 18.7 million hectares to 28 million hectares. Its productivity and productivity in horticulture are relatively high compared to its growth rate. He proposed an increase of 1% for each fruit and vegetable crop per hectare so that he could give 77,000 hectares. Doing it in many stages in gardening can create many jobs. We are increasing the price of food each season. Our food processing often depends on 9% of the products. It reiterates the importance of eating fresh foods for extra nutrition.

He reiterates the importance of applying what has been done for 55 years. Checking and reducing waste through good agro-logistics is a big step in fruit and vegetable development. With more focus on productivity, longer shelf life, consumers will be able to eat hotter, reduce waste, and post harvest technology. Under Atmanirberhar Barat, horticulture can be improved.

The event was hosted in New Delhi by Dr. A. K. Singing, DDG (Hort Saisi). The emphasis on high-tech, high-tech practices that puts value in the global fruit and vegetable market. Malnutrition needs to be addressed through vegetables and fruits and IIHR can focus more on it, says Dr. Ek Singh. IoT is a great success in the vineyard and we are exporting the unique tomato variety that we once imported and in the tour of the retired director Dr. Denesh and his colleagues.

Mizora imports tomatoes from the ground, but propagating this species, which can withstand the cold conditions of rotation, makes it good and takes three years to grow.

IIHR has many roles to play and we hope that in the coming days, fruits and vegetables will excel in all aspects of technology. Gardening is attractive to young people and young people go to gardening. Governments are also pushing for projects and packages to receive funding for horticultural crops.

Today, carbon is not in the air and in the soil, so carbon monoxide is good for fruit trees for many years to come. It emphasizes how to manage technology for rainforests in shallow soils and rainfall, as well as in terms of climate change, the need for water, high income demand and sustainable production. It also emphasizes the importance of India’s fruit and vegetable policies, and India’s importance of dried fruits and vegetables. In addition, the research institute required the dry land to develop a package of traditional species and practices, and we could have revised the policies so that we could take progressive action in the country. “As our products are with smallholder farmers, our goal should be to mobilize their products with the support of FPOs and then integrate them with value chains,” said Dr. Ashok Dalway.

In Kukber, Arka Vera was released. It is an open pollen variety, producing 28 tons per hectare and 28 tons of David mold per 47 days after sowing. Documentary films and publications on some crops such as pineapple and dragon fruit, good farming practices for commercial flowering crops, a book on archaic varieties, e-archaic mushroom cookies, were also released. Farmers, entrepreneurs, co-scientists, skills support staff and administrators were honored on this special day.
