This new meeting of the rice sector will include three days of conferences, panels, poster presentations, technical and commercial exposition, as well as a large field day in the rice valley of Piura.
This two-week training course focuses on building knowledge on the production of good quality seeds and rice seed systems with a regional focus for South and Central America.
The new NIRS is being used for the analysis of rice flour and very soon it is expected to start working on the required calibrations of the equipment for the analysis of samples of brown rice.
The work just begin and new challenges are emerging in the FLAR’s impact horizon for the Southern Cone.
Integration of processes, new equipment and renewed spaces are part of the transformation
With the arrival of the NIRS ™ DS2500, we take a new leap in rice quality analyzes.
Next 28 November marks 50 years since the release of the variety that allowed for a leap in rice production in Asia and set a milestone for what would be the beginning of the Green Revolution around the world: variety IR8. In 1960 the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), led by Robert Chandler…
In the framework of the exchange activities of the “Development and adoption of a low input rice production system through genetic breeding and advanced crop management technologies” project, better known as SATREPS, where the Colombian and Japanese governments are collaborating, Dr. Tadashi Chosa, presented his work on a yield monitoring system used during…
He is Joseph Tohme or simply Joe, leader, mentor, and manager, and he could also even be called the scientific guru of generations of researchers that have learned beside him a particular way of making science.
Dr. Pulver is a scientist with a global mission: improve farmers’ lives by raising crop yields. His accomplishments range from increasing Peru’s national rice production, to developing a system for evaluating rice resistance to blast in Colombia. From reducing yield gaps in the irrigated rice production of Venezuela and Brazil, to improving agricultural productivity in Nicaragua and Mexico.
