Working on the most workable pest management. Pest Risk Identification and Management (PRIME) team has convened at the Philippine Rice Research Institute to discuss strategies to maximize and share data for project partners. Other efforts to enhance the project’s implementation were also discussed during the meeting. PRIME aims to contribute to the reduction of yield losses due to pests through better management and targeting of risk areas thereby making rice production more profitable for farmers. With funding from the DA-Bureau of Agricultural Research, PRIME is a collaborative project among the DA-Bureau of Plant Industry, DA-Philippines Rice Research Institute, International Rice Research Institute, and the DA-Regional Field Offices. Present during the PRIME meeting (from left to right) were project leaders Dr. Eduardo Jimmy P. Quilang, (front, 1st), Mr. Edwin C.
