IRRI informs Matia of rice research breakthrough

UNB

International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) has briefed Bangladesh’s Agriculture Minister Matia Chowdhury about progress of a new rice type, which once released would revolutionize the world’s overall cereal production, reports UNB. IRRI along with 17 world renowned research groups from the 12 institutions in eight countries have been pursuing a 22-year rice engineering project and has got some early success this year after nine years of research. During her recent visit to the IRRI headquarters in the Philippines, the Bangladesh’s agriculture minister, expressed her keen interest in the ‘C4’ rice, which is expected to increase the global rice production by 50 percent. A government press statement yesterday said that Matia requested the IRRI to create opportunities for more Bangladeshi scientists to get involved in the frontier science in pursuit of phenomenal increase in rice output.

IRRI Director General Dr Matthew Morell welcomed a Matia-led visiting Bangladesh delegation to the Institute on November 28 and said that IRRI would continue to work with Bangladesh to ensure collaborative and responsive programs for the rice sector are in place to meet the current and future needs of the country’s rice industry.
