We hope this email finds you well. This is the August 2017 issue of our e-newsletter. Firstly, we would like to encourage you to share our e-newsletter to others. If people within your circle are interested to be a part of our mailing list, please do let us know by sending us an email:
For this issue, we share with you the PhilRice Strategic Plan 2017-2022. If you are thinking of collaborating with PhilRice or proposing your own research and development projects, you may want to check this out. We will use this as one of our key instruments in evaluating proposals. You may access this online through this link.

For our Featured Scientist section, we feature PhilRice scientist Dr. Roel R.  Suralta. His work on root plasticity has hundreds of citations, which attest to the relevance of his research. Dr. Suralta has published widely in international high-impact journals. Surely, there is a thing or two that you can learn from him!

You probably have heard of the flatbed dryer, a machine that enables drying of palay during the rainy season. Now, we have one more in the offing. Dr. Manuel Jose C. Regalado shares with us about  Rapid Far Infrared Ray Emitter Dryer. Learn more about it in the Featured Research section.

This rainy season, the PalayCheck System: Key Check #6, will help avoid excessive water supply.  You can share this to our farmers.
Our branch station in Los Baños has just launched its climate-smart projects. They also have recently started a new agreement with the Department of Education.  The details are in this section.

Our staff members have received recognitions recently, and we are happy to share them with you.

Lastly, we would like to see you next month for the National Rice R&D Conference! We expect hundreds of scientists, researchers, farmers, and other stakeholders for this event. Details are available from this link.

We would like to hear from you.  Please send us an email at .
