Founded in 1960 with the mission to develop high-yielding rice varieties, the IRRI team led by Peter Jennings crossed 38 available varieties including dwarf rice from Taiwan called DGWG or Dee-geo-woo-gen and a tall, pest-resistant rice from Indonesia called Peta.
This pairing of DGWG and Peta, the eighth among the 38 varieties, was tagged with the unexciting but efficient (research-wise) name IR8.
