The International Rice Research Institute donated scientific publications, which will be distributed to selected universities in Region II through the One-Stop information Shop project of the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice).
This PhilRice project aims to make information conveniently accessible to students and researchers who are interested in the field of agriculture. The universities that will receive the materials are Nueva Vizcaya State University, Quirino State University, Isabela State University, Ifugao State University and Cagayan State University. The publications donated by IRRI include the Rice Almanac, magazines, books, and CDs about agriculture and biotechnology.
PhilRice is a prominent partner in technology delivery and it is often the first recipient of IRRI research. Over the years, IRRI and PhilRice have collaborated on more than 50 research projects to help improve rice production in the country.
