ICAR - Central Coastal Agricultural Research Institute

ICAR - Central Coastal Agricultural Research Institute is one of the research institutes established under Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi. ICAR is an autonomous organization under Department of Agricultural Research and Education (DARE), Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India. ICAR Research Complex for Goa was established in April, 1976 as a regional centre under ICAR Research Complex for Northeast Hill region, Shillong, Meghalaya. Subsequently it became the regional centre, ICAR Research Complex for Goa, under CPCRI, Kasargod. Considering the importance of agriculture in Goa state, ICAR, New Delhi, upgraded the centre into an Independent Institute from April, 1989. Subsequently, this Institute has been upgraded from 1st April, 2014 as a ICAR-Central Coastal Agricultural Research Institute. This Institute is under the Natural Resource Management (NRM) division of ICAR. In 1983, a Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) was established in this Institute to provide transfer of technology to the farming community of Goa. ICAR - CCARI is spread over 53 ha in which all the major infrastructure and experimental field for research work are established. The Institute is situated in Old Goa (Latitude: 15030'52" N; Longitude : 73055'01" E) the historical capital of Goa during Portuguese times. This Institute provides research and development support to the agriculture and allied sector of Goa region. It plays a major role in promoting excellence in agriculture. This Institute is mainly involved in research activities which are aimed at improving the production and productivity of major crops of this region through various strategies including farming system approach. Other important areas of research include livestock and fisheries sector to increase the milk and meat production.

Mission of the Institute

The Institute was started with a mission to achieve,"Introduction and improvement of all potential crops and various species / breeds of livestock and scientific exploitation of various aquatic resources for improving fish production".

Coastal Information System

The coastal region of India is rich in bio-diversity with unique climate and natural resource base. Owing to the upgradation of this Institute from ICAR Research Complex for Goa to ICAR- Central Coastal Agricultural Research Institute, a need was felt to develop the coastal information system. The use of spatial database for the management of natural resources is gaining much attention in the present time. Considering the importance of the natural resources of the coastal region, a dedicated coastal information system geo-portal has been initiated. The advantage of developing such geo-portal serves as knowledge base for effective utilization of limited natural resources in the coastal regions. The coastal information system provides district wise detailed information about the demography, crops, soils and livestock of the coastal region. This detailed information will be helpful for formulating the research and development programs for sustainable development of the coastal region.
