Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI), established in 1970, is an agricultural research institute in Bangladesh, located in Gazipur. It specializes in the research of rice production.
BRRI is a member of the following work packages:
Investigating the consequences of reducing nitrogen pollution and how this will impact society, human well-being and the economy in the future. How choices made in other parts of the world affect South Asian decisions on nitrogen and vice versa is also explored
Conduct experiments on different agricultural practices to discover what are the best ways to reduce pollution without compromising on growth, food quality or create other impacts
Genetic research will be conducted to work out which genes in crops affect how well they use nitrogen so more nitrogen efficient crops, which create less waste, can be developed
Working closely with villages across South Asia, surveys will help determine the main cause of nitrogen waste as well as possible challenges in adopting different practices
