Training on ecological control of pests ongoing at IRRI
The course was jointly convened by IRRI senior scientists Grant Singleton (rodent management) and David Johnson (weed management). Charles Krebs, a world-renowned ecologist and professor, joins IRRI scientists as resource speaker.
Seventeen participants came from all over Asia and two from the United Kingdom—a mix of researchers, extension workers, and students.
The course is on its third offering since 2007. It was organized by the Irrigated Rice Research Consortium and supported with funding from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation through the Closing Rice Yield Gaps in Asia (CORIGAP) project.
