MASIPAG Luzon continues to develop and train new generations of rice breeders from the different provinces who will come up with new varieties of rice. It is expected that new farmer-trainers will also emerge from the training who will help pass on their skills to other farmers on breeding rice varieties that are resilient to climate change, appropriate to the cultural practices of the farmers and are palatable to the tastes and preferences of the family and the community.

Through farmer-rice breeding, not only are the production and livelihoods of the farmers improved, but the skills and capacity of the farmers are strengthened so that they can continue to work towards achieving food security for the present and future generations. #
