The Agricultural Research Institute, Tamab Peshawar has been the fountainhead of agricultural development in the province. During its 109 years history, it has significantly contributed to the economic prosperity of the farming community through introduction and evolution of high yielding varieties of crops, fruits and vegetables, standardization of agronomic techniques and dissemination of the latest know-how on crop husbandry, soil management, fertilizer use and plant protection measures. The research findings are disseminated to farmers by publishing research papers, technical bulletins and popular articles in local languages. Field Days, training courses and seminars are held periodically to acquaint the extension staff and the farmers with the latest research finding in various disciplines of agriculture. In addition Radio and TV talks are also delivered for the same purpose.
