The Pineapple Research Station at Vazhakulam was established on 2nd January 1995 to give research and development support to pineapple farmers. Since then, this research institute of the Kerala Agricultural University has been steadily growing and serving as a subvention to the pineapple growers of the state and the country as well. The research institute had a humble beginning on 2.1.1995 as “Pineapple Research Station & Pest and Disease Surveillance Unit” under the Kerala Horticulture Development Programme (KHDP). For the construction of the office-cum-laboratory building of the station 15 cents of land was transferred from the Revenue Department to Kerala Agricultural University on 24.6.1996. It was delinked from KHDP and became a constituent research centre of Kerala Agricultural University under Central Zone Regional Agricultural Research Station (RARS), Pattambi on 1.7.1997 and shifted to its own new building on 27.6.1998.
