The Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) is a Department of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment. It is the only institution engaged in agricultural research and depends largely on government funding, though in recent years, additional funds were obtained through European research projects.

It undertakes applied, theoretical and adaptive research within the wider domain of plant and animal production. Its research activities concern Fruit Trees and Viticulture, Plant Improvement, Vegetables and Ornamentals, Plant Protection, Soils, Water Use and Environment, Animal Production, Statistics and Agricultural Economics.

ARI staff consists of 40 scientists, 64 technicians and 14 administrative and accounting personnel.

The Institute is the national AGRIS Centre collecting, cataloguing and indexing the agricultural literature published in Cyprus, and is also the national CARIS Centre collating information on ongoing research.

International cooperation

The Institute cooperates with research establishments in Europe and other parts of the world, and with international and regional organizations, such as FAO, IAEA, ICARDA, IPGRI, etc. At present, the ARI participates in 17 EU funded projects in various disciplines of the broader agricultural sector. Results of ARI research are published in international journals or in its own publications series (Biennial Review, Technical Bulletin, Miscellaneous Reports and Agricultural Economics Report) in English.

The ARI is the National Focal Point for FAO projects related to conservation and utilization of plant and animal genetic resources in agriculture.

The Agricultural Research Institute has been selected in 2000 by the European Union as a “Centre of Excellence in Agriculture and Environment”. The total funding is nearly one million Euros and covers main activities in the field of Agriculture and Environment.

ARI participated in ERANet projects ARIMNET (2008-2013), RURAGRI (2009-2013), and is an observer organization at the ICT-AGRI ERANet (2009-2013).
