The Low country Regional Centre of the Tea Research Institute was established in 1963 to cater to the technological and extension needs of the tea growers of all areas in the Low country, which represents about 50% of the total extent of tea lands in Sri Lanka.  .

Because of the vast area covered by the Low country Regional Centre, three other Extension Centers were opened in Galle, Deniyaya and Kalutara, and at present this Centre caters to the three districts of Ratnapura, Kegalle and Kelani Valley. Work is undertaken in four key research areas of Agronomy, Plant Breeding, Entomology/ Nematology, and Process Technology, with particular emphasis on Low country needs.

Effective technology dissemination is possible from this Centre with the support of advanced technological equipment, demonstration sites on recommended good agricultural practices and other infrastructure facilities available.
