Experimental Farm, Horticulture and Landscaping Back

The Horticulture group maintains the lush green surroundings of the CCMB, LaCONES and CCMB  Annexure-2. The newly developed experimental farm is being maintained by the staff of this group to meet the requirements of the plant genetic fingerprinting work. 

Different varieties of rice (indica, japonica), maize as well as drought-resistant plants such as jojoba are being grown on the farm. The Green House facility developed by this group is fully functional and used for studies in plant molecular biology. Plants such as paddy, mustard and Arabidopsis are being grown here. In addition, coffee and mulberry plants are reared for experimental purposes for the ongoing programme on coffee germplasm studies. The fodder for rabbits kept in the Animal House is grown. Several medicinal plants are collected and grown in the campus.

The Horticulture group has won prestigious prizes at the Flower and Horticulture Shows, conducted by the Horticulture department, Government of Andhra Pradesh. This group undertakes all pest control activities in the campus and staff quarters.
