NARI hosts another successful show

Sharing and exchanging of information and knowledge, new technologies, innovations, inventions, improved farming practices and mobilizing resources among stakeholders including the farming community is essential to promote innovative agricultural development in PNG.

Agricultural Innovations Show set for 4th May

NARI will host its 9th Agricultural Innovations Show at the Sir Alkan Tololo Research Centre, Bubia, on Thursday, 4th May 2017. The annual event will coincide with the Institute's 20th Anniversary celebrations.

This year's show theme is “Inventions and Innovations for Prosperous and Food Secure PNG: Research to Practice.  

Solar powered milling technology for rice farmers

A solar powered rice milling technology will be piloted in the Morobe Province of Papua New Guinea for the next three years (2017-2019)  to boost food security and improve rural livelihoods in selected rice growing areas. This is a collaboration between NARI, Trukai Industries, Project Support Services (PSS) and the PNG Women in Agriculture with the support of the Australian Government funded Incentive Fund.

PNGWiADF turns 10

The PNG Women in Agriculture Development Foundation celebrated 10 years of service as the voice of women farmers in Papua New Guinea on January 25, 2017. NARI has been a great supporter of this women network, whose main office is housed at NARI Bubia. NARI Director General Dr Sergie Bang said PNGWiA is in a good position to make an input and benefit from PNG government’s investments in impact agricultural projects. Read more here.

Investment crucial for PNG agriculture

Papua New Guinea requires more investment in agriculture given the enormous potential the sector has to not only improve the economy but also to put money into the pockets of local farmers. This can be achieved by improving value chains of various food crops such as sweetpotato, Irish potato and bulb onion among others.

Australia's new Consulate General visits NARI

Australia has a long relationship with Papua New Guinea and supporting the agriculture sector is one way of strengthening this partnership, says Australia's new Consulate General to Lae, Paul Murphy. During his first official visit to the NARI Head Office at Bubia on February 28, 2017, Murphy also acknowledged the Institute as a long-time key partner in delivering Australian government funded projects over the years.

Solar driven rope water pump for drought vulnerable communities in PNG

A partnership between NARI and the Korean Government through the Korea Invention Promotion Association (KIPA) has seen the successful piloting of a solar driven rope-water pump technology in selected drought vulnerable communities of PNG. This is an innovation that will support sustainable rural farming for food security and income during extreme drought conditions.

Director General's Christmas Message

We are approaching another Festive Season and 2016 will pass by in the next few days. On this occasion, I wish to extend our very best wishes and appreciation to all staff of NARI - DG's Office, Senior Management, Staff at HQ and Regional Centres including DDG, PDs; RDCs, CMs, PLs, scientists and ancillary staff. My sincere appreciation is extended also to our partners and stakeholders, including the many farmers we have worked with during the course of this year.

Potential for mobile apps in agri development

The use of Mobile Applications (apps) as a conduit for data collection and information sharing offers enormous benefits in commerce, education and development. Mobile apps have been central to handsets such as smartphones and tablets in the face of mobile evolution. Their capability to allow instant usage when on-the-go has enhanced greater collaboration and access to information among millions of users globally.

Information system vital for agri development

Information is power and the up-keeping of an effective and efficient information management system is paramount for NARI and the PNG National Agriculture Research Systems (NARS).

The maintenance and expansion of the Melanesian Agricultural Information Systems (MAIS), formerly the PNG National Agricultural Information System (NAIS), adds value in ensuring better management and usability of research information in the agriculture sector.
