Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice)

The Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) is a government corporate entity attached to the Department of Agriculture created through Executive Order 1061 on 5 November 1985 (as amended) to help develop high-yielding and cost-reducing technologies so farmers can produce enough rice for all Filipinos.

The Institute accomplishes this through research and development work in our central and branch stations, coordinating with a network that comprises 57 agencies and 70 seed centers strategically located nationwide.
