Application for Rice Survivor 4

Have you ever wondered what it was like to grow your own plot of rice? Here is a unique opportunity.  The next Rice Survivor training course will start this November and run until mid May 2015.  
Rice Survivor is a  hands-on, seed to seed, rice production training where participants get their feet muddy and increase their knowledge, skills, and experience while tackling the challenges of rice production.  Participants will be grouped into diverse teams of 5-6 individuals from across the Institute. Each group will develop and implement their own production plan.  Participants can expect to spend 2-3 hours per week attending a training session and/or doing field activities.  Several resource persons will provide their insights on topics including land preparation, crop establishment, pest management issues, harvesting, milling, and grain quality.
The window for submitting applications is now open until 5 November.  Click on the following link to access the application form or send any questions/inquiries to Achu Arboleda or Maji Marikit ( or
