It was established in the year 1992, as an advanced Centre of F.R.I. under the umbrella of Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education, Dehra Dun, which is an autonomous council of Union Government of India Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, New Delhi.

The area of operations of FRC-ER includes three agro climatic zones (viz. Middle Gangetic Plains-IV; UpparGangetic Plains-V and Central Plateau and Hills-VIII) in Uttar Pradesh encompassing varied topography and environmental scenario in flood prone Saryu par area and Ghagra-Ganga Doab, Tarai zone adjoining Himalaya tract, forested and mineral rich Vindhyan formations and gently sloping uplands of Bundelkhand.


Mandate of Division:

  • To undertake focused research on rehabilitation of degraded ecosystems and difficult /stress sites and promotion of Agro-forestry.
  • To disseminate available technologies/processes/tools to user groups for conservation and sustainable use of forest resources.
  • To support the lead institute in research education and extension in the area of jurisdiction.
