Selection of suitable crops and variety to improve cropping system is very important for crop intensification and diversification. Multiple cropping is also play a very important role to increase cropping intensity, productivity and profit. Presently about 60% of the land are belongs to unfavorable ecosystem where cropping intensity and crop productivity is very less. Agronomic research to address the unfavorable ecosystems like salinity, drought, charland, hill, beels etc. is of prime importance to explore the potentiality of the adverse ecosystems. Agronomic research includes crop, soil and water management and their overall interaction in the cropping systems. Recently, the Agronomy Division has initiated different agronomic research on Chia, a new crop enrich with quality nutrients and having high medicinal value.
