Following a decade of research, professors Ingo Potrykus and Peter Beyer invented Golden Rice in 2000. This breakthrough transformed milled white rice into an affordable and potentially plentiful source of vitamin A in developing countries. The Golden Rice Project works to provide this biofortified rice to those most at risk of malnutrition. In 2004 the first Golden Rice field trials took place in Louisiana, followed by the first Asian field trials in 2008.
