Temperate Rice Research Consortium - Endrine, Turkey


The TRCC is held anually at a different location throughout the Temperate Rice growing regions of the world. The consortium provides Australia with an opportunity to link with similar rice growing countries to learn and discover new opportunities to improve rice production systems. The issues on temperate rice improvement include both biotic and abiotic stresses, yield potential, grain quality and nutrition, and water and nutrient management. It is recognized that the best possible solution to remove these constraints is through a consortium approach.

Objective Summary

The consortium is a group of 18 national and international institutions formally organized to collaborate in research, training, and technologygeneration activities designed to meet mutually agreed upon objectives. The TRRC was established, and using networks to connect scientists from different participating institutions with different expertise to form multidisciplinary teams and to share resources. It aims to: provide an international platform and mechanism that supports research and strengthens the partnership to promote application of suitable technologies and information to improve sustainable rice production serve as a platform for identifying and prioritizing concerns of temperate rice research in temperate environments and highaltitute areas in the tropics that generate international/regional public goods for improving rural livelihood provide logistical support and to coordinate NARESIRRIARI strategic research collaboration promote resource sharing and information exchange among partners
