The flagship project of the Horticulture Department provides training and demonstrations to farmers and door-step delivery of disease-free planting material etc. besides containing modern post-harvest management technologies. The centre also contains state-of-the-art Hydroponics unit and a plant clinic laboratory. 

The CoE has provided more than 2 Crore disease-free vegetable seedlings to farmers all over Punjab.The semifinalist projects were Agriculture Infrastructure Fund (AIF) Scheme, Project PHASE, Biofertilizer Laboratory Hoshiarpur, Sericulture (Developing silk production in Punjab) and Center of Excellence for Potato-Dhogri, Jalandhar (An Indo-Dutch Project). These projects were applauded for their innovation and contribution on the ground-level to create a positive impact for all its stakeholders.

SKOCH Awards are being conducted on a national level since 2003 to recognize projects and institutions working on topics of national importance-marking the awardee’s extraordinary achievements in contributing to the society.
