Media inquiries

IRRI is committed to providing science-based information on rice and more broadly on global rice research and development through the media. To facilitate this, we link journalists and other media professionals with our scientists for better and more accurate understanding of our work.

Feel free to direct your inquiries to our Media Team who can address your questions and set up interviews with our scientists and experts. Visit to IRRI for a face-to-face meeting with the scientists and viewing of facilities and research in action can also be arranged.
