its presence felt both nationally and internationally. ICAR-IASRI has been mainly responsible for conducting
research in Agricultural Statistics and Informatics to bridge the gaps in the existing knowledge.
It has also been providing education/ training in Agricultural Statistics and Informatics to develop
trained human resources in the country. The research and education are used for improving the quality
and meeting the challenges of agricultural research in newer emerging areas.
The Institute also occupies a place of pride in the National Agricultural
Statistics System (NASS) and has made several important contributions in
strengthening NASS, which has a direct impact on the national policies. The
Institute has contributed significantly by providing excellent human resources
to NARES in the country in the disciplines of Agricultural Statistics and Informatics
for meeting the challenges of Agricultural Research in the newer emerging areas.
Conducting postgraduate teaching and in-service courses in Agricultural Statistics,
Computer Application and Bioinformatics for human resource development is an important activity.
