IRRI Publications

Having been in existence for a little more than 50 years, IRRI has accumulated thousands of pages of written resources ranging from scientific papers, annual reports to essays and magazine articles. They cover almost everything you need to know about rice. Here you will find IRRI’s most recent publications.

IRRI Library

IRRI publications

The IRRI Library helps address information needs of researchers and scientists by providing a variety of services, collections, and technology. We are the gateway to a comprehensive and dynamic collection of rice literature in any format and language. We serve the IRRI community as the center of information where traditional and emerging information services converge.

Netherlands and IRRI

Netherlands and IRRI

Sharing scientific expertise is an important part of the Netherlands-IRRI partnership, rooted both in history and in mutual research interests. Early interactions between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and IRRI involved the identification of several publications for the IRRI library on the Netherlands’ research experience in Indonesia.

IRRI in East and Southern Africa

IRRI in East and Southern Africa

Rice is a staple food in many African countries and there have been consistent increases in demand for rice in the continent. However, the majority of rice-producing countries in Africa import between 50% and 99% of their rice requirements.1 IRRI has responded to the challenge of helping the continent reach rice self-sufficiency by providing countries in East and Southern Africa (ESA) with improved varieties and technologies, expertise, and training.

JICA and IRRI

Novel approaches in climate-smart villages in the Mekong region

Novel approaches in climate-smart villages in the Mekong region

To improve the capacities and capabilities of rural communities in addressing climate change challenges, the climate-smart agriculture (CSA) model is being introduced as a means to ensure food security, promote adaptation, and build resilience to climatic stresses particularly in the Mekong Deltas.

The Eddy Covariance Method

The Eddy Covariance Method

IRRI’s climate change research covers various aspects of adaptation and mitigation in rice production systems. Mitigation research focuses on developing technologies and crop management practices that can reduce methane (CH4, a potent greenhouse gas) emissions, and increase the carbon (C) sequestration in biomass and soil to reduce the carbon footprint of irrigated rice.

‘No regret’ mitigation strategies in rice production

‘No regret’ mitigation strategies in rice production

The project aims to develop an innovative approach based on highlighting co-benefits of mitigation options, integrating alternate wetting and drying (AWD) into a farming strategy, as opposed to approaches focusing only emissions reductions.

Climate-smart agro-advisory services for major food crops in South and Southeast Asia

Climate-smart agro-advisory services for major food crops in South and Southeast Asia

The Climate-Smart Agriculture Advisory Service (CSAAS) seeks to harness the power of information and communications technology (ICT) for the outscaling of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) technologies and climate-informed advisory services for rice, maize, and wheat in South and Southeast Asia.

Germany and IRRI

Germany and IRRI

The German government has supported IRRI research since 1974 and, as of May 2015, had funded 61 projects for a total amount of about USD 59 million. But the Germany-IRRI relationship started much earlier, in 1966, when the first German national came to IRRI as a research fellow.

FAO and IRRI

FAO and IRRI

IRRI’s early collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) dates back to events tied to the International Rice Year in 1966.

France and IRRI

France and IRRI

Within a few years of IRRI’s founding in 1960, French scientists were already collaborating with the institute’s researchers, albeit informally.

Australia and IRRI

Australia and IRRI

Australia and IRRI began working together in 1963 when Australian national Ian MacRae came to do research at IRRI as a soil microbiologist.

ADB and IRRI

ADB and IRRI

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has supported the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) since 1975 and has since funded 33 projects, 32 of which have been completed.
