About NRCC:

The task force appointed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India suggested urgent need of strengthening of research on citrus in Central India after their survey during 24th to 26th April, 1980. Further, Dr. D.J. Hutchison, and UNDP consultant on citrus recommended the establishment of Citrus Research Station at Nagpur to investigate problems concerning citrus fruits in Central India. The Maharashtra Government also requested the Director General, Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) for establishment of a Citrus Research Station at Nagpur. Similarly, quinquennial review team (QRT) of IIHR, Bangalore also recommended that the citrus research work conducted at Nagpur will be more useful and applicable. Consequently, ICAR agreed for the establishment of the Research Station at Nagpur in VI Plan.

A committee constituted by ICAR selected suitable land at Nagpur for establishing Central Citrus Research Station and Government of Maharashtra agreed to provide the 250 acres land for the station to be established during VII Plan. Finally, on 29th July, 1985 the foundation stone of the Central Citrus Research Station was formally laid by Sh. P.V. Narasimha Rao, the then Hon’ble Minister of Defence, Government of India and Centre started functioning from 29th November, 1985. On 1st April, 1986 the status of Central Citrus Research Station which was functioning under IIHR, Bangalore was upgraded to National Research Centre for Citrus with an outlay of Rs.74.00 lakhs in VII Plan.

Initially Centre started functioning from part of the building of rabbit breeding Centre of the Veterinary College at Seminary Hills, Nagpur which was under Dr. PDKV, Akola. The Centre was slowly established in this old building which was suitably renovated for laboratories, office of the Director and administration. Initially, Pathology, Entomology, Horticulture and Post-harvest Technology laboratories were established. During the 10 years period i.e. from 1986-87 to 1997, the Centre was having well developed laboratories at this site.
