Cambodia and IRRI
Fortunately, between December 1972 and January 1973, IRRI collected various types of rice in Cambodia and safely conserved duplicates in the International Rice Genebank at IRRI’s headquarters in the Philippines. When strife ended, IRRI helped Cambodia regain its lost rice varieties by repatriating 766 of the country’s traditional varieties between 1981 and 1990.
