Holiday greetings from the Philippine Rice Research Institute! We are glad to share the December Issue of the e-newsletter.
For this month, we have another special treat for you. We share with you the story of our Dangal ng PhilRice Outstanding Junior Development Worker, Jose Arnel E. Cordova from PhilRice Negros. Arnel is a passionate young staff member of PhilRice. Read his story from this link.
In our Featured Scientist section, we have innovated a bit by featuring someone who is not only good in her science, but also one who wears another hat that is more development-oriented in nature. Please read the story of Rona T. Dollentas from PhilRice Bicol. She is a soil scientist and has done massive work on soil characterization in different parts of the country.
Meanwhile, in our Featured Research section, we share something about weedy rice. A group of weed science experts of PhilRice shares their findings in their most recent study. Find out more from this link.
Early this month, PhilRice launched a book titled Communicating climate change in the rice sector. This publication tackles key points and guidance for people involved in communicating climate change in the Philippine setting, particularly in the rice agriculture sector. You may download the book on this link, free of charge.
Lastly, we share to you the book on Biology and management of invasive apple snails. The book will help guide farmers and extensions workers to prevent and manage this rice pest. This book is also free for download. Find your copy here.
We would like to hear from you. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
