Italian Rice Production: Making Rice More Resilient

Silvia Lazzaris, Katharina Kropshofer

Italy hosts a unique "library of rice" that contains over 1500 varieties! We visited Ente Nazionale Risi to learn how researchers are using this rice genetic heritage to cross-breed new rice species. Their goal: making rice more nutritious and resilient to withstand environmental and climate changes.Big thanks (grazie mille) to Philip Haxhari and Ente Nazionale Risi!
