2009 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.

Four project themes were developed and presented by the participants as follows:
  1. Poverty Reduction and Extension: Reaching the Upland Rice-Farmers of Northern Laos
  2. Sustainable Agriculture: Water Use in Rice Production
  3. Wild and Traditional Rice in the Cradle of Mankind
  4. Improved Iron Bioavailability in Nepalese Rice Lines to Reduce the Risk for Anemia
The Rice: Research to Production course was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States, The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, the Harvest Plus program, Afro-Asia Rural Development Organization (AARDO), and International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) through sponsorship from specific on-going projects or partnerships.
