The Mid Country Regional Centre of the TRI was established at Hantane in 1960, initially with the view of testing improved tea cultivars, with its scope being subsequently broadened to cater to the technological and extension service demands of the area. The centre focuses its activities mainly in Kandy and Matale districts where about 20% of total tea extent of the country is present.
In addition to disseminating the knowledge on relevant agricultural technologies and issuing planting materials to the stakeholders of the area, research activities are also undertaken in the five disciplines of Agronomy, Entomology and Nematology, Plant Breeding, Soils and Plant Nutrition and Agriculture Economics.
