The Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) are teaming up to exhibit at the 21st Scientific Conference of the Federation of Crop Science Societies of the Philippines (FCSSP) on May 9-1, 2011.

PhilRice and IRRI teamed up to exhibit Golden Rice through posters, photos, and video presentation during the FCSSP 21st National Scientific Conference held in Legaspi City in the Philippines from 9-14.
For more than 50 years IRRI has been working to improve the lives of rice farmers and consumers by delivering improved varieties of rice. Golden Rice is an incredible innovation that we are proud to now be working on.
