ICS has been playing a leading role in the crop science areas in the national.The institute has equipped itself with numerous national, provincial and ministerial major S&T infrastructures, such as National Key Facility for Crop Gene Resources and Genetic Improvement. National Genebank, National Engineering Laboratory of Crop Molecular Breeding, National Plant Transgenic Technology Research Center, National Transgenic Wheat Environmental Safety Assessment and Test Center, National Wheat Improvement Center, Key Laboratories of the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) for Crop Genetic Resources and Germplasm Innovation, Wheat Biology and Genetic Breeding, Soybean Biology and Crop Physiological and Cultivation, all of which provide favorable conditions and platforms for talent training.

Since 2003, the Institute has achieved 5 first prizes of National Prize for Progress in Science and Technology, 12 secondary prizes of National Prize for Progress in Science and Technology, and 45 provincial and ministerial awards, 202 patents, over 1200 SCI papers published in famous journals such as Nature, Nature Genetics, Nature Biotech, PNAS, Plant Cell, Genetics and TAG. ICS was listed the top one among all the national agricultural Institutes during the "Eleventh's Five Year" Evaluation. ICS was also the top one among all the CAAS Institutes from 2013 till now.

Currently, 243 registered graduates, and over 300 visting graduates from China Agricultural University, Nanjing Agricultural University, Zhejiang University, Northwest A&F University and other universities, and 47 postdoctoral research fellows are studying at our institute. The Institute has cultivated tens of graduates jointly with foreign universities from USA, Canada, UK, Australia and other countries. Every year, 3-4 outstanding graduates will be selected to study abroad. Besides, 10 international students are enrolled into the institute to study for master and/or doctor’s degree each year.

Our graduates were once nominated in “National Excellent 100 Doctoral Dissertation Award” and awarded with “Beijing Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Award”, “Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Award of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences” and “Beachell-Borlaug” International Scholarships. So far, graduates from the Institute have been recruited by different institutions, universities, governmental authorities and foreign companies across the nation, with the employment rate up to 95%. From 2009 to 2013, the Institute was continuously awarded the Advanced Management Group of graduates from Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences.

As a national agricultural research institution, we equip ourselves with solid technology bases, great strengths in scientific research, good scientific research conditions, top-grade talents and extensive domestic and international cooperation and exchange. With these superior advantages, we are undoubtedly an ideal base for agricultural graduates to get better cultivation. Welcome graduate candidates who are interested in agricultural science and technology to apply for our institute!

The institute offers Education programs in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Crop Genetics and Breeding, Crop Germplasm Resource Science, Crop Information Science, Crop Cultivation and Farming System, Agricultural Product Quality and Food Security, Plant Pathology, Management Science and Engineering, and Information Technology and Digital Agriculture.
