Agriculture Paragraph

Increasing food security


Rice is the most important human food, eaten by more than half of the worlds population every
day. In Asia, where 90% of rice is consumed, ensuring there is enough affordable rice for everyone,
or rice security, is equivalent to food security. In Africa and Latin America, rice is becoming a more
important staple too. Much of IRRIs work is around helping increase rice production to ensure
food security - particularly for those people most at risk of not getting enough food.
Food security is also recognized
as being more than just providing
people with enough calories to
live on, but ensuring people have
enough nutrients for optimal
health too. IRRI is working on
developing healthier rice varieties
to help those who mostly depend
on rice can get more nutrients into
their diet to reduce malnutrition.
Over a 25-year period, Filipino
farmers have gained an additional
US$52 (Php 2,300) per hectare
from using improved rice
varieties derived from the breeding work of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI).
The study covered three major rice-producing countries in Southeast Asia the Philippines,
Indonesia, and Vietnam. IRRI works with all three countries' agricultural research and extension
systems to advance its improved rice and distribute it as new varieties to local farmers.
The Philippines, a rice-eating country, has mostly small rice farms, averaging 1.7 hectares, and rice
is grown across different kinds of environments.

About My Last Holiday
Last weeks, I and my
friends spent our holiday
at Kompong Som. This is
one of beautiful beaches in
Kompong Som. It took
three hours to take there.
We concentrated in bus
station. At 5 A.M we
started our trip by bus.
Although I feel tired after
three long hours but sea
air made me re-excited.
We arrange our bags and
after that we quickly
swum in blue sea. The weather was very nice. The golden light spread in white
sand. Tiny waves crashing onto the beach. It is suitable for swimming. After
swimming, we started to build sandcastles, listened the sound of the waves, felt
the salted taste of sea and enjoyed some special foods. In the afternoon, we rode
around on the road from back of the beach to font of the beach by doublebicycles. That was a wonderful sight. One sight is sea, the others is mountain. It
really made me forget everything to relax. And then, we decided climb to some
mountains. Sightseeing is as beautiful as the other places. So we took many
photograph. We can saw mountain, houses and wide sea. When we climb down
the mountain, we bought some souvenir for our friends. A day go by so fast. I
wanted to stay there longer but we had to come back to work the day after. The
trip was short but it had a strong impression on me and I had many memories
with my friends. We came back Phnom Penh city and felt comfortable after a
good holiday.
