IRRI, or the International Rice Research Institute, is a nonprofit independent research and training organization. IRRI is a member of the CGIAR Consortium. IRRI develops new rice varieties and rice crop management techniques that help rice farmers improve the yield and quality of their rice in an environmentally sustainable way. We work with our public and private sector partners in national agricultural research and extension systems in major rice-growing countries to do research, training ...

This is an extended (14:50) interview with Dr. Dorian Fuller, an archeobotanist from University College - London. It was recorded at the 7th Annual International Rice Genetics Symposium in Manila, Philippines on November 5th, 2013.

A deceptively simple question: where does rice come from?The answer is understandably complex, incomplete, and mostly in the hands of two very different kind of scientists. On the one hand are archeologists - more specifically, 'archeobotanists' - whose modus operandi is still firmly rooted in excavations and exhaustive cataloging. On the other han…
 
Just like wine, rice is consumed my millions. But unlike wine - although some might argue this - rice is a staple. It feeds over half the world. We hear about wine tasters. But not rice tasters.Dr. Rochie Cuevas of the IRRI Grain Quality & Nutrition Center (GQNC) wants to change that. She firmly believes that a bridge can and should be built betwee…
 
The International Rice Genebank, maintained by IRRI, holds more than 117,000 types of rice, including modern and traditional varieties, and wild relatives of rice. It is the biggest collection of rice genetic diversity in the world. Countries from all over the world sent their rice to IRRI for safe keeping, and for sharing for the common public goo…
 
The IRRI Genotyping Services Laboratory (GSL) has been created to support the needs of rice breeding programs within the Global Rice Science Partnership. A primary goal is to optimize the sample preparation workflow to increase the efficiency of rice leaf tissue sampling, DNA extraction, and DNA quality control in preparation for SNP genotyping. Fo…
 
The Bigas2 Hackathon brings together IT developers from around the Philippines to inspire innovations that help improve the livelihood of rice farmers. This hackathon is unique not only because of its focus on agricultural technology, but also because it is driven by IRRI's mission: • reduce poverty and hunger • improve the health of rice farmers a…
 
"The best judge of whether or not a country is going to develop is how it treats its women. If it is educating its girls, if women have equal rights, that country is going to move forward. But if women are oppressed and abused and illiterate, then they're going to fall behind." ~ Barack Obama~"Farming is a profession of hope." ~Brian Brett~For more…
 
It could be argued that no disease reflects more about how we live than diabetes. It encompasses how we eat, how much we use our bodies, and hourly decisions regarding both. In many ways our blood sugar is as good an indicator of our health as is our blood pressure or body mass index. To call monitoring your blood sugar a 'numbers game' is to belit…
 
John Sheehy, former head, Applied Photosynthesis and Systems Modeling Laboratory (1995-2009) at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI; http://irri.org), discusses the early days of IRRI's C4 rice project.

Rice production is becoming increasingly relevant outside Asia, not simply because of increased consumption in other countries, but because our worldwide food security depends on it. Two major GRiSP partners illustrate this well. In this episode we meet John Manful of AfricaRice and Gonzalo Zorrilla of CIAT (International Center for Tropical Agricu…
 
Six months into his directorship of the Global Rice Science Partnership, Bas Bouman speaks about what it will take to coordinate over 900 research & development centers worldwide to achieve these goals:• Increase rice productivity and value for the poor• Foster more sustainable rice-based production• Help rice farmers adapt to climate change• Impro…
 
Presidential visits involve hefty work and logistics.

Early on in Rice Survivor it was widely assumed that "Team Double Trouble Makers" got their name from their curiously partitioned paddy.

In this inaugural broadcast of IRRI Radio we begin, appropriately enough, with a journey that matters a great deal to us: taking a rice seed to a rice crop. Rice Survivor challenges four teams of IRRI employees - many of whom have never stepped into a rice paddy - to grow and harvest their own rice. All of them study rice in one way or another so i…
