Research Areas


IHBT is constantly striving to generate new knowledge to fulfill its mission of sustainablemanagement of Bioresources in the himalayan region by adoptinga multidisciplinary approach in R & D activities. The Institute has five Divisions engaged in research of high scientific impact

Research on high value flowers, including agrotechnologies under greenhouse and open field conditions. Phytosanitation programs for production of disease free planting materials, pre- and post-harvest manage- ment of cut flowers, developing hybrids and mutants through conventional and non- conventional breeding programmes, indexing and characterisation of viruses affecting ornamentals, production of virus free plants for domestic market to improve the scenario of Indian floriculture in international market.




Natural Product Chemistry and Process Development

A floriculture field with greenhouse exist to undertake agrotechnological studies of ornamentals under field and polyhouse conditions. The unit has a cold chamber for preserving quality planting materials. A plant virology lab is a Nationally Recognized facility for testing of tissue culture raised plants against viruses in floriculture crops. The lab is well equipped with Ultracentrifuge, PCR, ELISA reader, electrophoresis and gel document systems along with several other minor equipments to undertake testing of micropropagated plants. An exclusive culture lab exist for raising virus free planting materials of ornamentals
