More than 2 years have passed since Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhoon...) devastated the island of Leyte in the central Philippines in November 2013. It took many lives. the damage it caused won't easily be forgotten by survivors featured in this video who continue to struggle to rebuild their lives.

In this video, Leyte farmers Efren Lazarte and Felicito Montano talk about their success with GSR.

Even if some farmers will never be able to completely regain what they lost, Green Super Rice (GSR; http://irri.org/resources/publication...), bred by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI; http://irri.org), is giving them a chance at rebuilding their livelihoods—and their lives!
