To make use of biotechnological research methodologies for creating solutions to tackle agricultural issues, Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India (GOI), plans to establish Biotech Hubs across India under DBT’s mission programme, “Biotech-Krishi Innovation Science Application Network (Biotech-KISAN)”. Biotech-KISAN scheme is a farmer centric scheme for farmers, developed by and with farmers. It is a Pan-India program, following a hub-and spoke model and stimulates entrepreneurship and innovation in farmers and empowers women. Biotech-KISAN features to identify and promote local farm leadership. Such leadership helps to develop science-based farming besides facilitating transfer of knowledge. A total of eight Biotech-KISAN Hubs in different Agro-climatic Zones have been supported.

One of the Biotech – KISAN Hub is sanctioned on January, 2019 to Agri Biotech Foundation, located on the campus of Agricultural Research Station (ARS) of Acharya N G Ranga Agricultural University, Reddipalli village, Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh.
