The plantlets produced at the centre have already been supplied to the farming community within and outside the State.

The Centre is perhaps the only institution which has successfully taken up commercial micro propagation of Black Pepper which is highly skillful and time consuming. This initiative of the Centre has come in for special commendation from the Spices Board and the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India.
