The Crop Breeding and Cultivation Research Institute was established in 1960. It is mainly engaged in high-quality, high-yield, disease-resistant rice, rapeseed, corn and other crop varieties breeding and related cultivation techniques, as well as research on agricultural product preservation processing and irradiation sterilization services.

Currently, the institute focuses on the development of modern agricultural industry with scientific and technological innovation, and promoting rural revitalization and farmers incomes as the fundamental tenet. By increasing scientific and technological innovation, popularizing and applying scientific and technical achievements, new contributions will be made to optimize the planting structure, improve quality and efficiency, and also increase farmers income in Shanghai and across the Yangtze River Delta region.

The institute's major research strengths are in the fields listed as follows:

1. Rice:

Breeding of a new variety of high-quality rice (Oryza Sativa L.); 

Utilization and research of heterosis in japonica hybrid rice with strong heterosis in rice (Oryza sativa L.);

High-yield, anti-herbicide non-transgenic rice variety breeding and application.

2. Oilseed Rape:

Breeding and application of high-yield, high-quality and high-oil-content double-low rape

3. Maize

Breeding and application of special fresh maize

4. Fresh-keeping technology of agricultural products research and development application

The institute now has well balanced and highly qualified  research teams. The senior scientists of the research teams are listed as follows:
