Indonesian Agricultural Environment Research Institute (IAERI or known as Balingtan), is a group of positions that are technically functional studies mandated to assist the duties and functions of Indonesian Center for Agricultural Land Resources Research and Development (ICARD, known as BBSDLP). Previously, the Garden Balingtan Experiment (1953) is held below the Central Institute of Agricultural Research (LP3) Bogor.
