About Station

NARP-WASHIM

Agriculture Research Station was started in British Regime during the year 1918. During that period, this Research Station was known as Government Farm. Later, British handed over the Farm along with Land, Buildings, Records, Instruments and Staff etc. to Department of Agriculture, Maharashtra State. After that it was again handed over to Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth during 1971-72. During the period of British and Department of Agriculture the work viz. Research work on Arboreum Cotton , Research work on Rainfed Wheat was being carried out at this station. Similarly it was the main centre for conducting the Multilocation Research Trials of Wheat from all over India.
