But for the Green Revolution, India could not have survived the population bomb. The Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI), New Delhi, was the seat of India’s ‘Green Revolution’ and “human resource development”, thereby contributing immensely to India’s food security and development. Our esteemed scientists like Dr. M S Swaminathan had a pioneer role Role in shaping this vision of Green and Prosperous India. IARI continues its efforts to bring Evergreen Revolution for sustainable food, nutrition, environment and livelihood security of the country.

                  Our eminent scientists have not only lead innovations but also helped in curriculum development and establishment of Afghan National Agricultural Science and Technology University (ANASTU), Kandahar, Afghanistan and Advanced Center for Agriculture Research and Education (ACARE) at Yezin University, Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar. Our distinguished leaders have helped many SAUs, and CAUs across the country to shape our young and sharp minds in Science and Agricultural Research.

IARI is one of the most decorated Institutes in the country which has time and again emerged as a propeller for Agricultural Research and Education across the globe.
