Main Wheat Research Station, Vijapur was establishment in1962 to brace up the research and development needs of irrigated wheat in Central India in general and Gujarat in particular. Ever since the station has done enviable work in wheat research and development and has given 50 recommendations to the farming community that range from cropping system to the judicious utilization of ever attenuating resources like water and nutrition. These recommendations have been instrumental in increasing wheat production with concomitant reduction in cost of production by a sizeable margin in the state. Needless to mention, the station has predominant share in wheat improvement in Central and Peninsular India too.
The farm has a total area of 33.09 ha out of which 25.97 ha is cultivated. The rest of the area is under roads and buildings. The farm is fully utilized in kharif with main emphasis on fertility recuperation besides seed production, trials on crops like castor, forages etc. The station has three well equipped laboratories one each for quality, crop health and soil samples analyses.
