Present library encompasses about six hundred and eleven books related to the various disciplines of agriculture crop husbandry.
Library also subscribes twenty national, nine international peer reviewed research journals for assisting scientists and students in enriching their wisdom.
Besides, library subscribes twenty seven magazines and conserves annual reports of Directorate of Seed Research, National Seed Project, Plant Variety Protection and DUS testing and ICAR seed project.
Library contains national guidelines for nucleus and breeder seed production of various field crops and national guidelines for conduct of test for Distinctness, Uniformity and Stability.
