Agriculture Research Council
Agriculture research started in 1902 in the Sudan for the study of the possibility of cotton cultivation by irrigation in northern Sudan and by rain in southern Sudan. In 1967 agriculture research which was a department in the Ministry of Agriculture, gained an independent status under the name of Agriculture Research Corporation. In 2001 the latter became one of the components of the Sudan Ministry of Science and Technology.
The Agriculture Research Corporation is now a member of the Federal Union of the Sudan Academy of Sciences, and supervises and executes the agriculture research programs sponsored by SAS.
