​​​Hybrid rice is grown on about 20 million hectares annually in the world, with about 6 million ha in the countries outside of China. IRRI started the Hybrid Rice Development Consortium in 2008 to strengthen public and private partnership and support hybrid rice R&D at IRRI. What have we achieved so far and what challenges are seen ahead? Hybrid rice R&D at IRRI will be reviewed and future priorities will be discussed in this seminar.
