CGIAR Center

The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) is an international research and training organization established to develop new rice varieties and rice crop management techniques while finding sustainable ways to improve the well-being of poor rice farmers. IRRI is one of 15 agricultural research centers that comprise the CGIAR network, and is also the largest nonprofit agricultural research center in Asia. In addition to its research activities, IRRI broadens its impact by supporting strategic policy and market development and facilitating large-scale adoption of rice technologies.
