On the 30th Anniversary of PhilRice, the elements of the logo symbolize a farmer holding a bilao (woven tray) with rice. Taken from the top point of view, 3 characterizes his arms and 0, his hat. The grains of rice along the corners embody the 30 longs years of the Institute’s journey. They come in all shapes and colors – as diverse as PhilRice’s accomplishments and challenges in the service of the Filipino farmers for three decades.

In the Philippines, one could easily equate food with rice. With more than 100M Filipinos eating rice at least three times a day, this comes as no surprise. Rice, to date, remains the staple food in the Philippines, making it one of the prized, highly debated commodities in the country. This issue showcases some of the government’s interventions under the Food Staples Sufficiency Program (FSSP) to help ensure availability of rice for all Filipinos. These undertakings constitute part 1 of our special issue on FSSP.

This issue will try to enlighten you on how varieties are bred, eventually used as seeds, and adopted by farmers. It will also help farmers decide on which varieties to plant and encourage them to use high-quality seeds.

Sensitive to the pressing issues of poverty and unemployment in the rural farming areas today, PhilRice has refocused its efforts toward resolving these rural development impediments. The Institute’s goal is to create an impact that ripples through the implementation of a nucleus estate strategy. With this strategy, PhilRice stations across the country would play a dual role as an R&D institution (its core role) and as a one-stop agribusiness service provider to the farmers.
