The state government has appointed the Hisar-based Centre for Plant Biotechnology (CPB), as the nodal agency for the procurement of disease-free healthy tissue culture plants by various departments, agencies, authorities, corporations and organisations in the state.


The CPB is a centre of Haryana State Council for Science and Technology (HSCST), Panchkula, an autonomous body of the state science and technology department.

While stating this here on Monday, Pushpa Kharb, director of CPB, said all departments of the state government would go through CPB for their requirements of tissue culture plants. The farmers or departments would have to submit their demand for plants to CPB six months in advance, Kharb added.
