The main goal of the institute is to increase crop productivity and quality to ensure food security, optimize use of natural resources (land & water); and use up-to-date technology to reduce input cost and increase net returns to the farmers. Detailed aims include: 1- Developing and releasing new high-yielding early maturing varieties and hybrids, which are also resistant to pests and tolerant to adverse conditions (salinity, drought and high temperature); 2- Producing high quality breeder and foundation seeds for all the recommended commercial varieties to maintain their genetic purity

C.R.I. is one of the oldest cotton research institutions in Egypt and worldwide. Its inception dates back to the first decade of the 20th century when it was established as a unit within a small research station at Giza little before the Ministry of Agriculture was created in 1913. In 1919, GOE established the “Cotton Research Council” to investigate ways and means of improving yield, enhance resistance to pests and diseases, design and implement soil research and plant physiology (fertilization and nutrition).
Plant Pathology Research Institute is one of the first institutions established for scientific research in Egypt (1919). The main objective of the institute is to protect Egyptian crops against different diseases caused by microorganisms (Fungi, Bacteria, Nematodes and Viruses), which cause great economic losses that adversely affect the national income. To achieve this objective, the institute is carrying out a number of research, extension and applied activities in the fields of survey, management and epidemics of plant diseases.
The Sugar Crops Research Institute began in 1913 as the sugar cane section in the Department of Agriculture.
