Regional field officers from the Department of Agriculture (DA) underwent training at IRRI in preparation for participatory varietal selection (PVS) trials that they will facilitate for the 2015 wet season. PVS is a simple way for breeders and agronomists to determine varieties that perform well on-farm and are preferred by farmers. (This was originally published on 16 April 2015)
