About DFR

The establishment of an independent institute ‘Directorate of Floricultural Research’ by ICAR at Pusa, New Delhi, was a positive step to strengthen the existing network of AICRP on Floriculture and also in making them more focussed and research oriented. Newly established Directorate of Floricultural Research with the help of AICRP network is playing an important role in strengthening floricultural research and augmenting the technological base in floriculture in different regions of the country. Outreach of the technologies and creating awareness about the benefits of practicing floriculture among rural population is the need of the hour, which would be achieved through the network of coordinated centres spread all over the country.
