The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI; http://irri.org), in cooperation with the Philippine Department of Agriculture-Rice Program Secretariat, turned over 6 tons of seeds of high-yielding rice varieties to the Department of Agriculture on 9 December 2013 and 8 and 14 January 2014.

The donation, a component of IRRI's ongoing support to the Philippine Government's disaster response efforts, will be used for seed multiplication to help farmers in areas devastated by Supertyphoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) that hit the central region of the country in November 2013.
