Adopting proper and systematic seed production practices is vital to producing high-quality rice seeds. Quality seeds command a higher price in the market, leading to increased income for the farmers. The capacity of resource-poor farmers in producing quality seeds is strengthened through training activities conducted by the International Rice Research Institute (http://irri.org through the Stress-tolerant Rice for Vulnerable Environments project) in selected unfavorable rice-growing areas in Myanmar http://irri.org/our-work/locations/my...
To contribute in improving farm productivity and livelihoods in the country, IRRI is working together with the Myanmar Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation, and agencies such as the AVSI Foundation, Radanar Ayar, Welhungerhilfe, and Relief International.
This initiative is supported by the US Agency for International Development.
