Twenty-one scientists from Japan, South Korea, Benin, India, and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) are attending a training program for ORYZA version 3 at IRRI’s Training Center. ORYZA is an important rice production tool for extrapolating their research results; verifying various hypotheses prior to possible experimentation; evaluating the impacts of climate change, rice variety, and dissemination of rice variety and technology on rice production; and aid in rice breeding.
The training aims to help the participants understand the structure and functions of the software as well as the essentials of the modeling—data preparation, setting of parameters, and cultivar parameterization, including interpretation of simulation outputs and analysis of different crop management scenarios. The 5-day program, which runs from 13 to 17 April, is being conducted by the Training Team comprised of Tao Li, Ando Radanielson, Olivyn Angeles, Man Marcaida, Mahlie Manalo, and Lolit Adriano.
