The Society for Plant Biochemistry and Biotechnology (SPBB) was established in the year 1991 with its Headquarter at Division of Biochemistry, ICAR-IARI, Pusa Campus, New Delhi. It provides a unique platform to the scientists/students/research scholars working in the field of plant biochemistry and biotechnology to share their research achievements. Since its establishment, it has played a major role in bringing together plant biochemists and biotechnologist for strengthening research and promoting it at international level. For this purpose the Society ventured in bringing out the Journal of Plant Biochemistry and Biotechnology right from the beginning. It is a matter of pride that our journal was then the first one to be included in Current Contents from India. We had given major focus on keeping the quality both in content and production and make it truely an International Journal. It is gratifying that all Chief Editors ( Dr R.P. Sharma, Dr M.L. Lodha, Dr T.R. Sharma and now Dr Srinivasan ) along with the Editorial Board kept this vision upfront and it is because of their sincere and dedicated efforts that the journal has international recognition as manuscripts are received from overseas in large numbers and Journal has good international ranking. I would like to express gratitude to them.

The Society was fortunate in having outstanding leadership. Dr S. Ramachandran, Dr R.S. Paroda and Prof V.L. Chopra steared the Society as Presidents until this responsibility was given to me by the Hon’ble members of the Society. It was pleasure for me to be the Secretary of the Society for fifteen years from inception. I was followed by Dr K.R. Koundal, Dr P Ananda Kumar, Dr N.K. Singh and now Dr Shelly Praveen. They all worked with dedication and sincerity for strengthening the Society and furthering the objectives. They all deserve our grateful thanks.

During this period, we all worked hard for strengthening financial health of the Society, achieving international recognition and presence and in organising both national and international events in various themes of scientific interest.Since its inception, Society has organised 16 National Conferences/Symposia/Seminars including one International Conference to bring together students, researchers, young scientists, professionals etc. on a common platform to make a roadmap to meet the challenges in agriculture.

I am very much thankful to all the present and past Executive Committee Members, members of the Society and many individuals for their unstinted cooperation and unmatched support for the growth of the Society.
Nothing would please us more than to have feedback, suggestions and innovative ideas from the members for the betterment of SPBB. These could be sent on spbb1991@gmail.com
