varieties of rice grains
The International Rice Genebank (IRG), maintained by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), holds more than 112,000 types of rice, including modern and traditional varieties, and wild relatives of rice. It is the biggest collection of rice genetic diversity in the world. Countries from all over the world sent their rice to IRRI for safe keeping, and for sharing for the common public good.
