In Kosovo’s capital, ‘breathing harms health’

 

The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and BASF signed three agreements, paving the way for wider dissemination and adoption of direct-seeded rice (DSR) tools and technologies.
Through this partnership, the two organizations will establish a multi-stakeholder DSR Consortium and further research on the use of non-genetically modified, herbicide-tolerant rice.
Under optimal conditions, direct seeding is considered a more efficient and cheaper method of growing rice than manual rice transplantation.
It requires less resources such as labor and water, and it emits less greenhouse gases compared with other rice growing methods.
“Feeding the world is not just a public-sector concern. It’s a problem that needs everyone’s contribution, including the private sector. With this partnership, we’re enabling organizations like IRRI to work closely with companies like BASF toward a common goal, which is sustainable development,” said Jacqueline Hughes, IRRI’s deputy director general for Research.
