About Station

Originally, this Research Station was a Military Farm and subsequently in 1927 it was handed over to Agriculture Department for running as a Cattle Breeding Dairy Farm under Animal Husbandry Section, till 1935 for nine years. Later on, it was completely and exclusively transferred to the Agriculture Department of old M. P. for running it as “Seed Demonstration Farm”. However cattle breeding and dairy also continued side by side and a Poultry unit was also attached till 1960. When the dairy and poultry units were detached, agricultural activities were expanded and intensified for upgrading the farm to the Agricultural Research Station and restricting it to agricultural research work. In 1969, this Research Station was then transferred to the Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola as Agricultural Research Sub- Centre.



Agro Climatic Information

This Research Sub-Centre is located at 77º 30′ to 77 º 35′ E Longitude, 21º 18′ to 21º 30′ N Latitude and 1297 feet above mean sea level. The maximum temperature reaches to as high as  45º C during summer and the mercury column falls during winter as low as 7º  to 10º C. The average rainfall of this area is 814 mm received in 50 rainy days.




The total area under this Research Sub-Centre is 120.58 ha. out of which 101.34 ha. area is under cultivation and the remaining area of 19.24 ha is occupied by road, building, bunds and nala etc. The soil of the farm is categoried as medium to heavy in texture and low to medium in available N (143 to 290 kg/ha.) and P (8-15 Kg/ha.) with rich in K (252 to 305 kg/ha.) having pH of 7.5 to 8.0.

Irrigation potential is available from three tube wells situated in field No. 6 & 7. Two open wells are also located in field No. 3 and 7 respectively, but it has low water level and hence  not useful for irrigation purpose. At present, irrigation potential of 20-25 ha. in Rabi season and around 2.0-3.0 ha. in Summer season available from tube wells located in field No. 6 & 7. For land cultivation purpose, two tractors (50 & 55 H.P.) are available along with farm implements. This is supported by three bullocks.







  1. To produce quality seed/seedlings of important kharif and rabi crops.
  2. To generate farm income for strengthening research station activity.
  3. To educate the farmer regarding seed production activity.
  4. Agriculture extension work.
