Research & Development
Unwavering passion and commitment to excel is the spirit propelling our R&D efforts with the goal of attaining market leadership in the seed business. Our investment in R&D on one hand and top of the line germplasm on the other is a reflection of this commitment.

We have a team of around 150 scientists dedicated to plant breeding, genetic enhancement, agronomy, plant physiology, plant pathology, entomology, seed technology and biotechnology. These are supported by several reputed international consultants.

The on-farm research infrastructure at Vibha Seeds Group comprising of 1200 acres include 16 satellite research farms in and around Hyderabad, 15 out location R&D centers and 44 multi-location testing centers spread across diverse agro-ecological regions of India. This helps our scientists in developing high yielding hybrids resistant to biotic and abiotic stresses that are adaptable to varying agro-climatic zones. The group, with its large collection of germplasm across its mandate crops, has developed trait specific genetic enhancement programs by integrating conventional breeding with molecular tools, also addressing climate change.

Vibha is committed to supply quality seeds of all major crops our farmers need and has given major focus on cotton, maize, rice, wheat, pearl millet, sunflower, mustard, and vegetables (Okra, chillies, tomato, and gourds). The pulse forage crops and bio fuel are also receiving increasing attention.
Our key Research Objectives are :
Genetic enhancement to develop new and elite germplasm.
Deployment of new tools and techniques such as transgenics, genomics, and ICTs to enhance efficiency of genetic enhancement.
Creating value for the farmers by designing the processes as per market expectations in research systems
We place special emphasis on technologies for saving labor, drudgery and input-costs and climate-proofing, food safety and nutrition enhancement. International research centers of CG system and the globally advanced institutions are strengthened.

Aware of the complexities in ensuring food and nutrition securities, Vibha actively collaborates with national and international agriculture in each institution, both in India & abroad, in reaching its enshrined goal.
