2010 Rice Research to Production

One of the objectives of the training course is the experience and the understanding of how to structure effective international collaboration in rice science. For this the participants were divided into four working groups that maximized diversely by discipline, age, gender, and country.  Each group was given the task to design and draft a project proposal and to present that proposal at the end of the course.

Five project themes were developed and presented by the participants as follows:
  1. A Value-Chain Approach to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Disseminating Post-Harvest Technology Through Agricultural Cooperatives
    -   A Case Study in Central Luzon, Philippines
  2. Ghana Rice: Achieving Self Sufficiency
  3. Integrated rice-fish farming in the Philippines: a viable and sustainable agricultural practice?
  4. In-situ conservation of rice genetic diversity:
  5. Economic and environmental benefits of farmer involved conservation in Indonesia.
  6. PITSTEIN: creating pathways to improve farmer access to science
The Rice: Research to Production course was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States, Cornell University, and International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) through sponsorship from specific on-going projects or partnerships.
