Development Research is high on priority as the effectiveness of the development programme lies in research back up. While there is a continuous flow of improved technologies from institutions engaged in research, there are challenges emerging from the depletion of local natural resources and global climate change. BAIF has been continuously introducing improved, sustainable technologies in the field and identifying problems encountered by farmers. The feedback is the basis for the formulation of new research studies, which are conducted as on-farm trials with the active involvement of farmers. This has been the key to ensuring dynamics in the programme and relevance to the local situation. Research is an integral part of technology development at BAIF.
Various research projects are conducted on station apart from participatory on-farm research with active involvement of stakeholders.
