- Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) has registered HD-3385 with the Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers’ Rights Authority (PPVFRA).
- In view of rising temperature, the Center announced setting up of a committee to monitor the situation arising out of rise in temperature and its impact on the current wheat crop.
