Abstract
The year 2001 was a year of sharpening our focus on the role of our research in poverty alleviation and the sustainability of research funding in line with KARl's strategic objectives. In order to enhance dissemination of knowledge and technologies and to catalyse the process of outreach and adoption of agricultural technologies, the Centre initiated seven projects under Agricultural Technology and Information Response Initiative (ATIRl). We continued with our on-going research under the existing programmes namely, Soil and Water Management, Plant Genetics and Breeding, Crop Protection, Regional Research Programme, SocioEconomics and Biometrics, Plant Genetic Resources and Animal Production. Communication with those for whose benefit our reseach is targeted was enhanced. To this end a drip irrigation demonstration site was established at the Centre during the year. This facility has proved to be a very important entry point to the Centre by the farmers in the region and elsewhere. The entire Centre contributed to the development of an optimum portifolio of Research themes as identified in the Institute's Medium Term Plan
