  Can Rice Research Break the Cycle of Poverty for Rice Farmers in Asia?  
(Academic)

Distinguished international agriculturalist Dr. Ron Cantrell will address why many rice farmers in South and Southeast Asia are trapped in a cycle of poverty in spite of the great economic strides the region has made. He will discuss increased efficiency in rice production as a critical element of a development program for the rural poor of Asia. Cantrell has been Director General of the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines, head of the Agronomy Department at Iowa State University, Chief of Party and agronomist for Purdue University’s farming systems team in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, and director of the Maize Program at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center in Mexico. The lecture, sponsored by the Office of International Research, Education, and Development, is part of International Education Week, as declared by the U.S. Department of Education.
