ICAR has made significant contributions in the development of improved cultivars and their relevant production, protection and processing technologies in fourteen mandated crops, covering cereals, coarse millets, pulses, oilseeds, fodder, fibre and horticultural crops. These crop varieties have been widely adopted in their recommended areas / agro-climatic zones. This website managing released varieties and their important characteristics in database and display in website. To facilitate these ITMUs, five Zonal Technology Management Centres (ZTMCs) were opened in different zones for technology protection, promotion and commercialization. At central level, Intellectual Property and Technology Management (IP&TM) Unit is leading this system by providing budget, technical support in case to case basis and assistance for IP related legal issues. Based on the encouraging lessons learnt during the XI Plan, the scope in the proposed XII Plan scheme is considerably enhanced.
