The Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) is Indias largest and foremost Institute in the field of research and higher education and training in agricultural sciences. It has served the cause of science and society with distinction through first rate research, generation of appropriate technologies and development of human resources. In fact, the Green Revolution was born in the fields of IARI and our graduates constitute the core of the quality human resource in Indias agricultural research and education. The Institute has all along been adjusting and improving its policies, plans and programmes to effectively respond to the needs and opportunities of the nation. During the fifties, the advancement of scientific disciplines constituted the core programme and provided the base for its fast expansion in the 1960s and 1970s in all its three interactive areas, namely, research, education and extension. Besides basic research, applied and commodity research gained great importance resulting in the development of several popular high yielding varieties of almost all major crops and their associated management technologies, which brought about an unprecedented increase in the national food and agricultural production. The main functions of the Institute cover the areas of basic and applied research in the major branches of agricultural sciences; post graduate education at the M.Sc., M.Tech. and Ph.D.levels for which the Institute has been accorded the status of a Deemed University under the University Grants Commission Act of 1956; specialized post graduate training courses; and extension education and transfer of technology in selected areas. The administrative control of the Institute is vested with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), which is an autonomous organization established under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. The Institute was originally established by the Government of India in 1905 at the village Pusa in north Bihar. After a devastating earthquake in 1934, it was shifted to New Delhi in 1936. That is why it is popularly known as the pusa Institute. It is known also by its popular acronym IARI. The present campus of the Institute is a self-contained complex spread over an area of about 500 hectares. The Institute has inherited a great tradition of agricultural research. Since its early days at Pusa, the Institute has been doing pioneering work in various fields of agricultural sciences. The Institute has expanded greatly in its activities, research facilities and scientific personnel in the post-independence years. When the Institute came to New Delhi in 1936 it had five Sections. Today, the Institutes research and educational activities are carried out through a network of 35 Divisions/multi-disciplinary laboratories/Centres of Excellence/units and 8 Regional Stations.
