Annual Report of the Director General, 2005-06
In 2005, IRRI consolidated its research and related activities into 11 projects under four programs—Genetic resources conservation, evaluation, and gene discovery; Enhancing productivity and sustainability of favorable environments; Improving productivity and livelihood for fragile environments; and Strengthening linkages between research and development. Much of the work continues to be guided by and implemented through two research consortia—the Irrigated Rice Research Consortium and the Consortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments—which bring together IRRI scientists and their colleagues from the national agricultural research and extension systems (NARES) of the institute’s partner countries. These and other IRRI research thrusts, major events and activities in 2005-2006 are covered in detail.
