  Welcome to:

Central Cotton Research Institute Sakrand was founded in 1976, with the objectives to provide production technology, to solve Cotton production problems, to increase Cotton production through evolution of high yielding Cotton varieties with other required characters. With the endeavors of multi-disciplinary research conducted through Agronomy, Plant Breeding & Genetics, Entomology, Plant Pathology and Plant Physiology / Chemistry Sections. The Institute has successfully involved three high yielding and early maturing Cotton varieties, CRIS-9 (1992), Marvi (2001), CRIS-134 (2002), CRIS-121 & CRIS-467 (2006). These varieties are being successfully grown throughout Sindh. A number of most promising strains, CRIS-19, CRIS-82, CRIS-133 and CRIS-168 have already been tested in advance breeding as well as National coordinated Variety Trials. The strain ranked in better positions in these trials but, their variety release proposals have not been submitted due to CLCV (Cotton Leaf Curl Virus) disease issue, because these varieties are not CLCV resistant Since 1996, CLCV disease through occurred at low to moderate intensity from Northern Sindh and now it has reached up to Mirpurkhas, thus evolution of CLCV resistant varieties had become ultimate goal of the Institute.  Click Here for Further Detail
