Outreach and Extension
The aforementioned substations and experimental sites serve to facilitate the Institute’s outreach and extension services to farmers and industrialists/stakeholders operating on its mandate crops all over the country, namely:
- Serving as effective information channels whereby research findings get to farmers and industrialists. Also, the production constraints of farmers and industrialists are fed back to researchers.
- Improving the socio-economic status of farmers/farm families through improved and diversified income.
- Increasing productivity of farmers through effective utilisation of on-farm trial methods, thereby enhancing adoption of technology.
- Bringing about awareness to farmers on varied methods of utilising farm by products.
