Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute

Research focuses  on generating demand-driven agricultural technologies and innovations to contribute to the attainment of increased production and productivity for sustainable agriculture and food systems, increased food and nutrition security, profitability and supplying of the required raw materials to feed the increasing agro-industries. Demand driven technologies also address challenges such as low production and productivity, improper use of agricultural inputs, poor pre-and-post-harvest handling, inadequate use of mechanized labour saving technologies and low quality value added products. Others include the development of technologies that counteract the effect of climate change, depletion and unsustainable management and utilization of the natural resources. Moreover, cross cutting issues such as precision agriculture, and biotechnology are emphasized.
