Main Oilseeds Research Station
Junagadh Agricultural University
Junagadh- 362 001 (Gujarat)
(Year of Establishment : 1956)

Introduction
The Main Oilseeds Research Station was established at Junagadh during the year 1956 in the state with the objectives to breed and develop high yielding, disease and pest resistant and better quality varieties of different oilseed crops like groundnut, castor, sesame, sunflower, soybean and mustard. Currently, the centre is actively engaged in groundnut and castor research works in the main areas like,
  • Plant Breeding& Genetics - Crop improvement
  • Agronomy- Crop production
  • Plant Protection : (a) Agril. Entomology, (b) Plant Pathology
  • Plant Physiology
In addition to these, the station is also working as a testing center for Mustard, Sunflower and Sesame crops. The center also contributes the groundnut varieties and castor varieties / hybrids for National level research programme and it is one of the centre for the All India Coordinated Research Projects on Groundnut, Castor, National Seed Project, RKVY Seed Project and aflatoxin project.

RESEARCH IN GROUNDNUT
Mandates of research 
  • To develop early maturing groundnut varieties with high yield potential, better quality and high oil content.
  • To develop disease, pest, drought and aflatoxin resistant groundnut varieties with good export potential.
  • To evolve production technologies for newly developed and improved varieties.
  • To provide breeder seed of groundnut varieties to the agencies of Gujarat and India.
  • To disseminate information generated through research to farmers through front line demonstrations.
  • To solve problems regarding groundnut production through radio, TV programmes, popular articles, hand outs, personal discussion, night discussion and by organizing farmers' day and week end training programmes etc.

EXTENSION ACTIVITIES
FLD (Frontline Demonstrations):

The government of India, while realizing the import dependency of the edible oils, established the technology mission on Oilseeds (TMO) in 1986 which adopted four pronged strategy for reaping production, processing and storage technologies for attaining self reliance in oilseeds. The series of farmer oriented policies through TMO made an impact on the vegetable oil production of the country to shift from a stagnation stage to swift growth stage. The Adhoc Project on “Frontline demonstrations in oilseed Crops” sponsored by Department of Agriculture and Cooperation, Government of India was launched from Kharif, 1990-91. The above scheme amply provided opportunities to the researchers of the All India Coordinated Research Project on Oilseeds (AICORPO) actively in generation of location specific technologies for (1) demonstrating to farmers what they were advocating, (2) test their effect and viability, (3) obtain feed from the clients and (4) fine-tune the technologies to improve their acceptability and suitability to real farm situation.
