The Indian Agricultural Research Institute also known as IARI is a premier national Institute for agricultural research, education and extension in India. It is situated in the Pusa Campus area in New Delhi and is located about 8 kms west of the New Delhi Railway Station and about 16 kms east of the Indira Gandhi International Airport [DEL] situated at Palam. The Institute campus spans over a massive area of 500 hectares which translates approximately to 1250 acres.

The IARI Institute has continuously adjusted and improved its programmes, policies and plans in order to effectively respond to the needs and opportunities of the country and its people. During the 1950s, the rapid expansion of all the core programmes in the three interactive fields of research, education and extension were attributed to the advancement of scientific disciplines hence providing a base for its expansion throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s too. Besides the ‘basic research’, ‘applied’ and ‘commodity’ research also gained significance that resulted in the development of several but popular high yielding varieties of major crops and their associated management technologies. This growth contributed to an exponential increase in the production of national food and agricultural produce.
