We hope this email finds you well. Welcome to the September issue of our e-newsletter.
First, we would like to thank you for sending us your feedback for the previous issues of this e-newsletter, and we would like to encourage you to keep sending us your thoughts—about this e-newsletter, PhilRice, or even if you just want to keep in touch with anyone in the Institute.
As we have emphasized during the previous issue, please feel free to share this to anyone who might be interested in rice research and development.
For this issue, we would like to share the photos of the recently concluded 30th National R4D Conference. It was a fun-filled and highly cerebral conference! Check out the list of winners from this link.
During the opening day of the conference, an economist shared his insights on how the Philippines can be rice competitive. His thoughts are in the “From the website” section.
PhilRice Scientist Dr. Norvie L. Manigbas talks about his life and work experiences, achievements, and other fields of interests.
For our Featured Research Section, our breeders have identified a new breeding line that shows high submergence tolerance under flooded condition. You may read the story here.
Our branch station in Isabela strengthens its broadcast initiatives as it aims to promote new farm technologies among farmers in Cagayan Valley.
Lastly, we invite you to visit our newest rice paddy art featuring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel) at the FutureRice Farm here in PhilRice Central Experiment Station. Surely, it’s worth seeing up close.
We would like to hear from you. Please send us an email at email@example.com .
