IRRI Agronomy Challenge 1: Soil Prep to Postharvest & Wrapup

During January-June 2012, Achim Dobermann, deputy director general for research at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI; http://irri.org), and Leigh Vial, head of IRRI's experiment station, conducted a special project, the IRRI Agronomy Challenge, in which they demonstrated how to grow a productive rice crop in a 25 x 100-meter field on IRRI's research farm.

This series of 18 videos shows the step-by-step process of successes--and failures--from soil preparation and variety selection to harvest, postharvest, and assessment of what happened.

Special guest experts from IRRI appeared from time to time to discuss certain activities and issues.
