    Indian  Institute  of  Oil  Palm  Research  serves  as  a  centre for

   conducting  and  coordinating  research under  four main  section 

   that are interconnected

 

    Genetic Resource Management

    Crop Management and Post Harvest Technology

    Crop Protection

    Social Sciences

 

      The Genetic Resource  Management section is in the  process  of

   identification of high yielding varieties having  distinct characteristics

   of high oil extraction rates, compact canopy and  drought tolerance.

   Research have been taken up to develop DNA marker traits like shell

   thickness and  fruit color and  identification of elite material to resolve

   IPR issues.  IIOPR is working on standardization of protocol for clonal

   propagation of elite oil palm species.

 

       The section on Crop Management and Post Harvest Technology

   is working on the water management and nutrient management of oil

   palm in  the  irrigated conditions.  Mapping  physiological  traits  for

   higher productivity and stability is an area where  ongoing  research

   shows tremendous potential. Biochemical studies like formation of oil

   and changes in oil quality from anthesis to bunch maturity, seasonal

   variation in oil formation  and  quality and variation in oil content and

   quality within a bunch as well as fruits are being investigated. Research

   on various aspects of post harvest studies on oil palm and devising

   a mechanized harvesting tool suitable for harvesting the fresh fruit

   bunches is also being done.

 

       The Crop Protection section is involved in the research pertaining to

   the various pests and diseases of oil palm in the country.  The various

   symptoms for the  pests and  diseases and  their  control  measures is

   being studied.

 

       The Social Sciences section is actively engaged in technology

   assessment, dissemination  and  promoting  the  various

   technologies developed, among farming community through

   exhibitions, field visits and group meetings. Country wise statistics

   on oil palm are collected and maintained for effective information

   retrieval. Development of databases and software are being taken

   up for effective transmission of information.
