The National Institute of Agricultural Technology is a cutting-edge organization in Argentina, leader of the agro-technological scene in research, extension and innovation.

The National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA) is a decentralized state agency with operational and financial autarchy, dependent on the National Ministry of Agroindustry. It was created in 1956 and since then it has been developing research and technological innovation actions in value chains, regions and territories to improve the country’s competitiveness and sustainable rural development.

Its efforts are geared towards innovation as the engine of development and it integrates capacities to promote inter-institutional cooperation, generate knowledge and technologies and put them at the service of the sector through its extension, information and communication systems.

The institution has a presence in the five ecoregions of Argentina (Northwest, Northeast, Cuyo, Pampeana and Patagonia), through a structure that includes: a central headquarters, 15 regional centers, 52 experimental stations, 6 research centers and 22 institutes. research, and more than 350 Extension Units

For their part, two private entities created by the Institution in 1993, Intea S.A. and Fundación ArgenINTA, join forces to form the INTA Group. The result of INTA’s work allows the country to achieve greater potential and opportunities to access regional and international markets with products and services with high added value.


INTA contributes to DairyMix through data from dairy production case studies in Argentina (WP2). Different production systems will be identified, mostly differing one from the other in terms of crop-livestock integration, intensification level and agricultural context. Some case studies include agroforestry systems to be investigated in collaboration with UMIL and ATB in T2.3. INTA will also contribute to most of WP4 tasks, in particular to T4.3 (socioeconomic evaluation) and collaborate to WP3.
