DuPont and International Rice Research Institute Partner to Boost Rice Yields
Date:3/3/2009

With Yield Growth Rates Under 1 Percent Since 2000, Partnership Will Target Acceleration and Commercialization to Meet Growing Global Demand.

Los Banos, Philippines (vocus) March 3, 2009 -- DuPont and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) today announced a partnership to boost rice yields. The Scientific Know-How and Exchange Program (SKEP) establishes a new model for public-private sector collaboration that can benefit farmers and consumers while stimulating commercial innovation.

“This innovative and novel partnership will enable the leading public research institution in rice breeding and genetics to collaborate with the global leader in advanced plant genetics, breeding and product development to increase global rice productivity,” said William S. Niebur, vice president – DuPont Crop Genetics Research and Development. “By partnering with IRRI to strengthen and accelerate hybrid rice breeding efforts, we will enhance commercialization of higher yielding hybrids in Asia to help meet global demand.”

The goal of the collaboration is to increase the rate of yield gains and to boost the quality and diversity of hybrid rice. Collaborating scientists will further develop the understanding of hybrid vigor in rice and will work to develop hybrids with better resistance to brown planthopper, a key insect pest. Aspects of this work will be shared publicly a
