2012 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. Cyber Village - The Next Phase
    Improve farmer access to information and technology across the Philippines
  2. An Agronomic Revolution
    Allelopathy in Rice
  3. Securing Rice for Tomorrow
  4. Climate Change Adaptation in Bangladesh: A Pilot project to Address SOil Salinity in the Shatkhira and Khulna Districts
  5. Bridging the gap:
    Developing rice seed cooperatives in Lao PDR
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.
