The Central Plantation Crops Research Institute (CPCRI) was established in 1916 as Central Coconut Research Station and was later taken over by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR). The ICAR established CPCRI in 1970 by merging Central Coconut Research Stations at Kasaragod and Kayamkulam as well as Central Arecanut Research Station, Vittal and its five substations at Palode (Kerala), Kannara (Kerala), Hirehalli (Karnataka), Mohitnagar (West Bengal) and Kahikuchi (Assam). The research centers of CPCRI for spices, cashew, oil palm and coastal agriculture had been upgraded to independent institutes and directorates.
