About Us

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, and knowledge transfer. Our social and economic research also informs governments to help them formulate policy to improve the equitable supply of rice.

The Big Bus!

For many IRRI employees The Big Bus (“Ang malaking bus“) is how they get to and from work. In 2014, it turns 30, and choices need to be made regarding its future. Michael Joyce reports that one potential fate of the bus (actually there are two of the same model) is particularly intriguing.

The Origin of Rice | A Conversation with Archeobotanist Dr. Dorian Fuller | (Extended Version)

The Origin of Rice | (Short Version)

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 hand, geneticists,who work in one of the fastest growing and most technologic disciplines in all of science. IRRI Radio's Michael Joyce caught up with archeobotanist, Dr. Dorian Fuller, and geneticist, Dr. Susan McCouch at the 7th International Rice Genetics Symposium in Manila in November, 2013. It seems Drs. McCouch and Fuller not only wanted to talk about where rice comes from, but also why the answer to the question matters so much to so many.
