2011 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. The participants were divided into five working groups which maximized their diversity in terms of discipline, age, gender and country. Each group was tasked to design and draft a project proposal and to present that proposal at the end of the course.

The five project themes that were developed and presented by the participants are as follows:
  1. Burundi Rice: Increasing productivity through integrated nutrient and water management in Burundi;
  2. SSTRB: Salt and Submergence Tolerant Rice for Bangladesh;
  3. Varietal Selection and Adoption of Rice Germplasm for the Philippine Lowlands;
  4. Enhancing markets using the value chain for improved quality (Decreasing post harvest loss through hermetic storage;
  5. Implementing sustainable integrated pest management (IPM) to prevent rice insect pest outbreaks in Tanzania. 
The Rice Research to Production Course was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States, George Liang (Philanthropist), the GATSBY Charitable Foundation, the ATSE Crawford Fund, Department of Agriculture – Bureau of Agricultural Research (Philippines) and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) through sponsorship from specific on-going projects and partnerships.
