IRRI has its own service laboratories that conduct research and experiments in various disciplines to uphold global standards and create meaningful impact to its stakeholders. It also runs field experiments to improve its delivery system, as well as equips its stakeholders with knowledge of farm mechanization to improve input-use efficiency.
IRRI also houses training centers where trainees, scholars, researchers and scientists from different countries are supported and empowered with rice research capacity. It also accommodates visitors and residents in dorm facilities where they meet their co-participants and learn from diverse research interests within IRRI network. With this, the institute becomes pivotal in transforming its training participants into leaders in numerous agricultural research initiatives.
