Referred to as the Canal Colony, that area now forms the richest agricultural region. The Barani Agricultural Research Institute is the only institute of the country which is conducting research on all aspects of Barani Agriculture.

The Institute is comprised of seven research divisions namely; Crop Breeding, Agronomy, Soil Science, Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Agricultural Engineering and Agricultural : Amjad Shahzad Gondal, Abdur Rashid Khan.
