Earlier five centers were assigned for jiggery and khadsari. The planning commission again assigned four more centers in Gangtok, Ranchi, Mumbai, and Mangalore. The main focus of the Organization is to study about the original available techniques of harvesting and finding new ways to improve that technique. To form and acquire farm cleaners, dryers for cereals, oilseeds, pulses, plantation crops, tubers, livestock, fish and o0ther field crop.
