IRRI’s annual reports have constantly evolved over the years. Since 2012, the report has been streamlined with the printed version presented in a brochure format that summarizes research highlights, milestones, and financial information.
The Annual Report 2014 provides a view of IRRI's performance during the year and brings the Institute’s research strategy and vision to life through stories. This year, IRRI established a new and relevant rice breeding factory, deciphered the information found in 3,000 sequenced rice genomes, helped in marketing the Philippines’ unique indigenous “heirloom” rice varieties to the outside world, distributed climate-smart rice varieties to reduce Asian farmers’ risks, and celebrated 150 consecutive knowledge-filled cropping seasons of the Long-Term Continuous Cropping Experiment . All of this and much, much more marked yet another banner year for the Institute. These and other research thrusts, major events, and activities are covered in detail. Download pdf of print version
