“ After the initial development and sharing of many IRRI bred CMS lines & hybrid rice technology, I am sure that the IRRI’s revitalized Hybrid Rice Consortium is better equipped now to  develop & provide the much needed trait specific parental lines to its members. The private sector is now better equipped to further jointly develop & spread the hybrids to enhance the stagnant productivity levels thru the  New Rice Hybrids”
