ICAR-National Research Center for Grapes, Manjri, Pune is engaged in developing appropriate and economically viable agro techniques for quality grape production and to sustain the productivity and quality through management of biotic and abiotic stresses.
During our visit to the institute on 25th July 2018 we had the opportunity to see their field station.
Grape leaf samples (healthy and anthracnose, bacterial spot, and powdery mildew infected) as well as active pathogen cultures were provided by Dr. Indu Sawant and Dr. Sujoy Saha (ICAR-NRC for Grapes).
Many thanks to Director of the ICAR-NRC for Grapes for his kind support.
