Mission Activities

Aroma Mission aims to bring additional area of 5500 hectares under cultivation of these crops by interventions of CSIR to further catalyze the cultivation of aromatic crops in about 60,000 hectares. This will help in production of an additional 700 tonnes of essential oil for perfumery, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, and use of these oils in value addition and herbal products would generate a business of at least 200 crores.

CSIR’s Aroma Mission aims to increase the income of the farmers through cultivation of high value and high demand aromatic crops by about Rs. 30,000 to 60,000/ha/year. About 45,000 skilled human resource capable of multiplying quality planting material, distillation, fractionation and value addition will also be developed under “Skill India” initiatives. More than 25,000 farming families would be directly benefitted and an employment of more than 10-15 lakhs mandays will be generated in rural areas. Scientific interventions would provide assured benefits to the growers of Vidarbha, Bundelkhand, Gujarat, Marathwada, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and other states where farmers are exposed to frequent episodes of weather extremes and account for maximum suicides.
