Summary ADRON (Anne van Dijk Rijst Onderzoekscentrum Nickerie), is part of SNRI (Stichting Nationaal Rijstonderzoeks Instituut) engaged in rice research.
Description  SNRI (Stichting Nationaal Rijstonderzoeks Instituut), is a foundation, mandated to reinvigorate rice research in Suriname through the establishment of a new research centre in Nickerie. This semi-autonomous para-statal reports to the Minister of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries (LVV) but manages its own finances.
Recurrent funds are coming from a rice-export levy, through the Ministry of LVV. In 1995 the European Development Fund (EDF) supported SNRI with funds to build a new research centre and laboratory, and the equipment to make it work.

ADRON (Anne van Dijk Rijst Onderzoekscentrum Nickerie), is part of SNRI. The Centre is a vehicle for improving the rice sector. For the time being the Centre must emphasize adaptive research activities in various problems, such as (i) the yield gap between current rice
varieties and varieties abroad, (ii) fertilizer management, (iii) land preparation, and (iv) quality management. Needed are calibration tests or demonstration trials on current rice varieties, available fertilizer, and known methods, which are no longer, practiced in
