Holidays greetings from the Philippine Rice Research Institute!
We are glad to share the December issue of our e-newsletter.
Before we go on vacation, let’s share the recommended rice varieties and technologies for the coming dry season to help farmers gain more abundant harvest. And while taking a break, please be stress-free in planning for the Noche Buena and Media Noche. Try our rice-based recipes that will absolutely satisfy the loved ones taste buds and will make them ask for more!
The true essence of Christmas is by sharing love to one another. In Ilocos Sur, see how the young people from Candon City show their love for farming and share their knowledge to local rice farmers throughout the year. Read this truly inspiring story.
The PhilRice tower lighting is one of the most awaited events in Brgy. Maligaya, Science City of Munoz. For 23 years, the tower had brought joys and smiles to PhilRice employees and neighboring communities every December. Let’s recall how this event started.
Ending this year would not be complete without the messages from our officials. Acting Executive Director Sailila E. Abdula thanks us for our efforts and sacrifices in fulfilling our Institutional goals. Deputy Executive Directors, Abner C. Montecalvo (Administrative and Financial Services), Dr. Flodeliza H. Bordey (Research), and Dr. Karen Eloisa T. Barroga (Development) also send their holiday greetings and yearend challenges to us.
