At present 120 scientists from 30 funded centers and 174 scientists from 123 non-funded co-operating centers are carrying out the planned activities. In addition to this, as a key component of national steering Committee, the DWR plays a crucial role in formulating strategies to ensure sustainable improvement in the productivity of Rice-Wheat System. Adoption of molecular approach to complement conventional wheat improvement programme is one of the recent initiatives taken up by DWR through a research network project. Research capabilities and facilities are being strengthened through various network projects to enhance output of competent research centers under AICW & BIP.
