ABOUT  US

Savanna Agricultural Research Institute (SARI) is one of the thirteen (13) research institutes of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). It was originally known as the Nyankpala Agricultural Experimental Station (NAES) and operated as an outpost of the Crop Research Institute (CRI), Kumasi. In 1994, it gained autonomy and was upgraded to a fully-fledged research institute and thus renamed Savanna Agricultural Research Institute-SARI for short. SARI is located 16 kilometers west of Tamale in the Tolon District of the Northern Region of Ghana.
