Annual crop research activities in Cameroon were initially conducted by the then French tropical agronomic research institute (IRAT), at Bambui and Dschang.
In the mid-60s, after independence, when research was nationalized and a National Office for Scientific and Technical Research (ONAREST) was organized to cater for organized research in the country, nine research institutes were created and food crop activities were entrusted to the Institute of Food and Textile Crops (ICVT), with headquarters at Njombe.
Later reorganization of scientific research led to the merging of all agriculture-related institute into one, the Institute of Agricultural and Forestry Research (IRAF).
IRAF gave way to the Institute of Agronomic Research (IRA), which later merged with the Institute of Animal and Veterinary Research (IRZV) to yield the present day Institute of Agricultural Research for Development (IRAD).
