Research and Product Development programs at the NBIL have undergone major scientific up-gradation, during the last one-decade or so. Advance breeding strategies, with novel genetic resources, gene pyramiding with molecular-aided gene tracking systems, and extensive testing of genetic stocks, breeding lines and hybrids derived thereof, are generating a range of predetermined designer products.

Consequently, our recently launched products in the Farmers’ fields, or those at the penultimate stage of Demos or Large-Scale Trials, or in Multi-Location Trials, represent the new breed and benchmark of hybrid seeds: They are endowed with significant genetic enhancement for yield potential, as well as Climate Resilient capability.

NBIL continues to provide substantial financial allocations to further strengthen its R&D programs. The competitive environment in the area of hybrid seeds is rapidly growing worldwide, so also in our country as well. It is no longer good enough to offer high yielding hybrid varieties to the Indian Farmers. It is now becoming a mandatory requirement that such hybrids carry additional built-in value through seed embedded technologies/genes providing durable protection against specific diseases, pests and vagaries of nature (floods/drought/heat stress etc.)

Technological up-gradation remains a continual process at the NBIL. In cotton, in addition to stacking GM traits for bollworm protection, we are on the constant lookout for novel germplasm resources for imparting/enhancing resistance/ tolerance against some of the notorious sucking pests, as also dehydration-stress (drought). Big Boll size (for reduced labor and ease in picking) and excellent re-flushing abilities are the additional novelties our new Bt-Cotton products (for Central and South Zone) are almost invariably carrying.

The year 2016 was a landmark for our R&D in particular.

For the first time ever, NBIL conducted an Exclusive Multi-Location Trial of an exceptional range of Bt-cotton hybrids, at Sixteen pre-selected rain-fed locations, mainly in the states of Maharashtra, Telangana, MP and Gujarat. This exclusive trial was strictly on No Irrigation and No Spray basis. Crop growth and development was entirely dependent on rain and no irrigation, nor any external inputs for protection against insect pests.

Some of the test products emerged as the best among Bt-cotton hybrids, especially bred for enhanced tolerance against dehydration stress (drought), as also for high-level resistance against four major sucking pests of cotton. As expected, the results were remarkable at locations with minimal rainfall. In addition to our own trials, State Agricultural University trial results were equally spectacular, if not more.

NBIL’s caravan of Science and Technology moves on: Not only in the areas of Molecular Breeding, but also in genetic transformation, generating our own transgenic, even in cotton. New two-gene Bt-Cotton transgenic events are getting ready for Event Selection and a Contained Open Field Trial in 2018. Attempts to correct the breakdown of resistance against Pink Bollworm in Bt-cotton are also being addressed, through new possibilities of Genome Editing.

To summarize, your company is constantly endeavoring to invest time, energy and money in Research and Development efforts to create high yield products to benefit the farming community at large.
