Dr. Peter Jennings, IRRI's first rice breeder (1961-67) with a long career in Latin America after his work in Asia, kicks off this historic series with a singular wit.
He played a major role in the development of IR8, the rice variety that would ultimately change the face of agriculture across Asia (see Breeding History on pages 34-38 of Rice Today Vol. 5, No. 4). He reminisced on a warm, muggy day (20 July 2007) at his home in Gainesville, Florida. This is Part 1 of the entire interview, the complete text of which is at http://archive.irri.org/publications/...
