At the outset I wish all the rice fraternity a very happy and prosperous New Year-2016. 

At Institute level we are constantly reorienting our research priorities tailored to meet the needs of the farmers. In this direction we undertook an extensive mass farmer contact programme-Rytu Sadbhawana Yatra in the state of Andhra Pradesh in which scientists from all the ICAR institutes based at Hyderabad toured 200 villages covering all the 13 districts of the state within a span of three days. The teams met all the stake holders of agriculture to identify the researchable issues, disseminate latest technologies and instil confidence among the farming community. Increased emphasis is given to address the issues in sustainable management of soil fertility, water, pests and diseases under changing and aberrant climatic conditions.

As a coordinating Institute for CRP Biofortification comprising seven crops across 35 centres for improvement of seven traits associated with biofortification, significant leads have been obtained with respect to screening of genotypes, nutritional profiling of the promising genotypes.  DRR Dhan 45 (IET 23832), the first high zinc rice variety developed at IIRR is one of three biofortified rice varieties notified at national level during this period. A training programme on ‘Modern Integrated Crop Breeding Tools’ was conducted. National Rice Group Meeting for Hill Rice was held at the ICAR Research Complex North Eastern Region (ICAR-RC NEH), Umiam, Shillong. IIRR team participated in ICAR-Inter Zonal Final Sports Meet held at Jodhpur and our participants Dr. K. Surekha and Dr. G. Padmavathi won the Gold in Womens’ Doubles and Dr. K. Surekha won Silver in Singles table Tennis events at. I take this opportunity to congratulate the winners.

I am happy to inform that Dr. Trilochan Mohapatra, an eminent biotechnologist of the country has taken over as Director General of ICAR. IIRR family wish him all the success in his new endeavour. He visited the Institute on 25-26 March, 2016 and reviewed the ongoing research programmes.

            Kharif-2015 rice production is 90.59 million tonnes from 38.36 million hectares ( Rice domestic and export prices are expected to be north bound due to the shortfall in production. The cumulative rainfall during the 2015 monsoon season has been deficient by 15 per cent. Current Rabi season is also besieged by unseasonal rains leading to crop damage across the country. According to the NCAER (National Council of Applied and Economic Research) 2016 Rabi report, the rice production is expected to be lower due to poor monsoon rains and lower water levels in reservoirs.
