DSRC Field Laboratory
DSRC Field Laboratory at IRRI HQ
A 5-hectare field laboratory was established at IRRI HQ in the Philippines to demonstrate DSR advanced technologies, including mechanization and precision management. This serves as a platform for a multidisciplinary team of IRRI scientists to work closely with partners in addressing complex issues associated with DSR, and for developing more efficient and sustainable DSR systems.
A similar field laboratory was also established at IRRI South Asia Regional Centre (IRRI SARC) in Varanasi, India.
The field laboratory:
Showcases advanced technologies and strategic research on direct seeded rice
Provides a platform to engage various stakeholders
Integrates cross-thematic collaboration
Catalyzes capacity building
Shared research outputs among DSRC members, IRRI’s themes and programs
