The document describes the first year of research by the Rice Research Program conducted cooperatively at the Environmental Research Laboratory in Corvallis (ERL-C), Oregon, USA; and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) at Los Banos, the Philippines. It covers the period of 1 October, 1990 through 30 September, 1991. The first year of the program saw significant accomplishments in setting up the administrative framework for the program, refining the research objectives, and initiating the research. However, this was only the beginning. The next four years of the project will include intensive modeling and research activities to assess the effects of UV-B radiation and global climate change on rice productivity.
