The present campus of IARI is a self-contained aesthetically laid out sylvan complex spread over an area of about 500 ha. The beautiful clock-towered building of the Central Library of the Institute constitutes the focal point of the campus around which stand the laboratory buildings of various Divisions, staff quarters, students, hostels, guest houses, a medical dispensary and schools for boys and girls. The experimental fields, which form an integral part of the IARI campus, cover an area of about 340 ha, of which about 300 ha is irrigated by an interlinked chain of tubewells and water storage tanks, while the remainder is used for dryland farming research experiments.
