With its goal of achieving rice self-sufficiency through research and development in rice industry, the Institute keeps on studying and discovering new technologies and breeding new rice varieties that would cater farmers’ needs with concern to climate change. One of the excellent varieties discovered and approved is the gorgeous NSIC Rc122.NSIC Rc122, popularly known as 'Angelica' rice whom was named after the stunning beauty of the governor of Agusan del Norte, Ma. Angelica Rosedell M. Amante-Matba was finally approved in 2003 by the  National Seed Industry Council (NSIC) from the line designation IR61979-138-1-3-2-3.In terms of agronomic characteristics, ―Angelica‖ rice has an average yield of 4.7t/ha and a maximum yield of 8.9t/ha. It matures within 121 days after seeding (DAS), can attain a height of 106 cm, and can produce up to 14 tillers. NSIC Rc122 ―Angelica‖ rice is resistant to the attacks of  blast and stem borer and has an intermediate reaction to bacterial leaf blight (BLB), tungro, brown plant hopper (BPH) and to green leafhopper (GLH). This variety has long grain and has a milling recovery of up to 65.4%.When it comes to eating quality it rates medium that means quite good or even excellent that passed the standards considering the Filipino taste and other criteria before it became a variety.   It started to attract attention in the field after it was released in the year 2003.Seeds of these varieties, along with other cultivars, were requested by and distributed in the dry season of 2005 to members of the Rice Seed Production Network (SeedNet) situated in the provinces of at least ten different regions.For NSIC Rc122 alone, more than 800 kilos of breeder seeds were disposed by PhilRice-CES between January and September of 2004. The National Seed Quality Control Services (NSQCS), released the status of  NSIC Rc122 (Angelica) rice seed  production in the year 2013 dry season covering the whole Caraga region. As of March 26, 2014 data shows that in terms of area there were 0.08ha planted with NSIC Rc122 breeder seeds, 6.5ha planted with foundatio and 8ha planted with registered seeds.In  previous year’s first cropping season, it is noted that there are seven hectares of land planted with NSIC Rc122 (Angelica) registered seeds and it doubled to 14 hectares in the cropping season in that same year 2013.    Meanwhile, the beauty and popularity of ―Angelica‖ rice sti ll linger in the heart, mind and field of the rice farmers especially in Caraga  because to them it’s not an ordinary rice variety as it is but the persona behind is worthy to be named and remembered as such. (Ginalyn V. Arbutante, PhilRice Agusan/PIA-Agusan del Norte) IRRI and partners hold training on modern rice seed production International Rice Research Institute | Updated: 10/20/2014 The International Rice Research Institute, in collaboration with Banaras Hindu University (BHU), the Directorate of Seed Research (DSR), and the National Seed Research and Technology Centre (NSRTC), organized an international hands-on training on quality rice seed production at BHU, Varanasi, India, on Oct. 6-10.The aim of the training was to improve the skills of researchers and trainers in quality seed production and discuss seed production problems encountered by farmers, researchers, and  pertinent agencies.   The training included a series of lectures by eminent scientists and experts on varied topics on seed production, quality control, new innovations in seed research, post-harvest technologies, and storage.Thirty  participants from 10 South and Southeast Asian countries attended the training. Participants were exposed to a two-day rigorous hands-on field to nursery bed  preparation, seed cleaning, field preparation, transplanting, rouging, among others. Rakesh Kumar Singh, senior scientist at IRRI and training coordinator, and Dr. P.K. Singh, professor, Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, BHU demonstrated  panicle selection, emasculation, tagging and  bagging.   Participants also visited the seed processing unit of the university and apprised about seed processing techniques. The team visited the demonstration field and various laboratories at DSR for an overview of new seed management research and technologies.Despite the use of modern  production technologies it is still a great challenge to bridge the yield gap as average yield lies much below the attainable yield of rice varieties in the region. The seed being the basic input in agriculture, good quality seed alone can increase grain yield by 5-20%. In view of the importance of quality seed in enhancing rice  productivity. ―It is important to ensure the  purity of seed and availability of quality seed to cater the growing demand and increase the rice production,‖ said Prof. Ravi Pratap Singh, director of the Institute of Agricultural Sciences at BHU, during his opening remarks.   ―Optimization of water management technologies is also important to harness the  potentials of high yielding rice varieties.‖ Dr. Umesh S. Singh, IRRI senior scientist and  STRASA South Asia Regional Project coordinator applauded the contribution of BHU in rice research and thanked the University for providing valuable support to the training. ―It is important to tone and rebind, time and again the mechanism of quality seed  production,‖ said Dr. U.S. Singh. Mukesh Gautam, managing director, Uttar Pradesh Seed Development Corporation, distributed certificates to the participants at the end of the training. He also shared his insights on quality seed production and processing.   ―Production and productivity of rice increased considerably over the last 2-3 years in Uttar Pradesh with higher seed replacement rate,‖ Dr. Gautam. ―The STRASA model is fine example of adoption of new technologies that increased rice yield in very short time.‖ The training was concluded with vote of thanks by Dr. Manzoor Hussain Dar, senior associate acientist at IRRI. Among the dignitaries who attended the event were Dr. S. Rajendra Prasad, director, DSR; Dr. R.K. Trivedi, director, NSRTC, Varanasi, and deputy commissioner for Quality Control, Ministry of Agriculture; and Dr. A. Vaishmapayan, dean of the College of Agriculture, BHU.The training on quality rice seed production was supported by STRASA, CURE, GRiSP, IRRI, BHU, and Trukai Industries Ltd, Papua New Guinea. Rice growers wrap up drought-diminished harvest Tim Hearden   Capital Press Published: October 21, 2014 4:53PM PHOTO COURTESY CFBF/AG ALERT Farmer Greg Van Dyke harvestts short-grain rice in a field in Pleasant Grove, Calif. Growers in many areas are wrapping up their rice harvest, with early varieties showing the best yields. California rice farmers are wrapping up their harvest of a crop that's expected to be 23 percent smaller than last year's. Good yields on many of the acres that were planted will help make up at least a small part of the loss of revenue, as will sales of rice straw. WILLIAMS, Calif.  —   As rice growers in California wrap up their harvest of a drought-diminished crop, good yields and more widespread sales of rice straw are helping them to at least partly make up for lost acreage.   The rice harvest was 85 percent complete as of Oct. 19, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service. Leo LaGrande, a grower here, finished work over the weekend and said his yields deteriorated as the season went along. ―We
