EXTENSION 

IIRR conducts short term refresher courses for the subject matter specialists and senior level extension functionaries of various state departments of agricultural as well as State Agricultural Universities. For this purpose a Communication and Training Centre (CTC) was established at IIRR in 1980. The Directorate of Extension (DOE), Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India strengthened the training facilities at IIRR and recognized it as the Advanced Training Centre (ATC) on Rice and renamed it as Centre of Excellence for Training (CET) in Rice. In 2000 CTC was renamed into Transfer of Technology and Training (TTT) Section.

TTT conducts both national and international training programs on various aspects of Rice Production and Protection technology. Some of the national level training courses are sponsored by Directorate of Extension, New Delhi, and Directorate of Rice Development (DRD), Patna for the benefit of different levels of extension functionaries from the state departments of agriculture. TTT conducts specialized workshops/training programs of 3-5 days duration for senior level state/central government functionaries, faculty of State Agricultural Universities and seed production & marketing personnel for private agro-industries. Some of the custom made training programs are organized as self-financed programs sponsored by various agro-inputs agencies and interested State Departments of Agriculture.

The international training programs on specialized themes are organized in collaboration with the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Rome, and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for the scientists, master trainers and subject matter specialists from the Asian countries.
