Vegetable Crops Research has a long history in SPII. Considering the important role of vegetables and pulse crops in food security and their high economic returns, research on these crops, namely potato and onion, was simultaneously started with the establishment of SPII in 1960, under the name of “Vegetable Crops Unit” in Horticultural Crops Research Department. 
In 1979, this unit was developed into an independent department “Vegetable Crops Research Department” and also "Pulse Crop Research Department" was established in SPII. In 1997, it was decided to distinct potato and onion research activities from Vegetable Research department and incorporate within Irrigated Pulses Crops to form, Potato, Onion and Irrigated Pulses research department; and the Vegetable Crops Research Department was moved to the Agricultural Research Center in Varamin, Tehran province. Once again, two departments re-merged and named “Vegetable and Irrigated Pulse Crops Research Department” at SPII in 2008.
At present, Vegetable and irrigated pulse crops research department is performing research on crops namely, potato, onion, tomato, pepper, eggplant, common bean types (chitti, white, red, and cowpea), faba bean, mung bean and quinoa. The important achievements of the department in recent years are releasing varieties.

- Red common bean: Akhtar, Derakhshan, Naz, Yaghout and Dadfar.
- White common bean: Pak, Shokoufa, Dorsa, Almas.
- Chitti bean: Sadri, Koosha, Ghafar and Ofogh.
- Broad bean: Barakat, Feiz, Shadan and Mahta
- Lettuce: Waresh, Setareh, Tavoosi.
- Spinach: Varamin-88.
- Melon: Khatouni-93, Dargazi-93.
- Eggplant: Behrad, Azin, Bita and Derakhshan
Development of new vegetable and irrigated pulse cultivars using conventional and molecular breeding methods.
- Selection and releasing salt and drought tolerant cultivars.
- Selection and releasing disease resistant/tolerant cultivars 
- Research on agronomical traits to increase yield and quality of released varieties. 
- Study on the adaptability of Iranian and imported vegetable cultivars in different climate conditions in Iran.
- Performing two national breeding programs for potato and common bean. 
- Production of pre-basic and basic seeds of new released cultivars in the department.
- Production of pre-basic and basic seeds of irrigated pulse crops under Deputy of Agronomy demand in Ministry of Agriculture-Jahad.
- Bilateral agreements in the fields of germplasm exchange and joint projects with following international research centers and universities to facilitate achievement of research goals and application of scientific achievements of international research centers:
1. International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) for faba bean research.
2. The World Vegetable Center (pervious Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center or AVRDC) for vegetable research. 
3. International Center for Tropical Agriculture or Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT) for bean research. 
4. University of Pannonia in Hungary for potato breeding.
