About College

The Directorate of Oilseeds Research (DOR) came into existence on 1 August, 1977. It was formerly known as All India Coordinated Research Project on Oilseeds (AICORPO) with the Headquarters at Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. It operated with a Project Director as its administrative head and seven Project Coordinators for groundnut, rapeseed-mustard, sesame, safflower, linseed, castor, sunflower and niger.  Subsequently, groundnut and rapeseed-mustard were delinked from the Directorate with the establishment of National Research Centre for each of these crops during 1979 and 1993 respectively. In April 2000, the AICRP on Sesame & Niger and Linseed have been separated from the administrative control of DOR. The Directorate has in its fold the mandate of working on castor, safflower and sunflower.
