Germany and IRRI
Four supported projects include research on tolerance of rice to anaerobic conditions, various types of rice production systems and their risks and safeguards, mitigating the effects of climate change, and reducing crop losses.
Through German funding, a seed drying and sorting facility is being built at IRRI headquarters that will increase the processing and storage capacity of the International Rice Genebank by 40%, or room for an additional 48,000 accessions on top of the current 120,000. Construction for the Genetic Resource Facility started in early 2015.
