ICAR-CRIJAF Sophisticated Analytical Instruments Facility (SAIF)

Central Research Institute for Jute and Allied Fibres is a premier institute on jute & allied fibre crops of ICAR under Crop Science. Jute Agricultural Research Laboratory (JARL) under Central Jute Commission was established in 1938 at Dhaka. After partition of the country, Jute Agricultural Research Laboratory shifted to Chinsura in West Bengal and then at the present location of Nilganj, Barrackpore in year of 1953 as Jute Agricultural Research Institute (JARI). JARI was taken over by Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in 1966. In January 1990, the institute has been rechristened to its present name Central Research Institute for Jute and Allied Fibres (CRIJAF). To carry out research work on jute and allied fibres and seed, the institute established four research stations viz., Ramie Research Station at Sorbhog, Assam in 1959; Sisal Research Station at Bamra, Odisha in 1962; Sunhemp Research Station at Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh in 1963 and Central Seed Research Station for Jute & Allied Fibres at Budbud, West Bangal in 1956. Besides, the institute has functioning as All India Network Projects on Jute and Allied Fibres (AINP on JAF).
The institute has three divisions viz., Crop Improvement, Crop Production and Crop Protection and one All India Network Project on Jute and Allied Fibres (AINP on JAF) unit. All the sophisticated costly equipments available are located and maintained at specific divisions / units. These equipments are used by the Scientists, Laboratory Staff and research scholars and the facilities can also be availed by other institutions on payment basis. The communications may be made to the Director, ICAR-CRIJAF. The payments may be made through RTGS / NEFT in the name of ICAR unit-CRIJAF Unit payable at State Bank of India, Barrackpore Railway Station Branch (IFSC Code: SBIN0003071).
