Field water management to save water and increase its productivity in irrigated lowland rice
Abstract Rice production in Asia needs to increase to feed a growing population whereas water for irrigation is getting scarcer. Major challenges are to (i) save water; (ii) increase waterExpand
ORYZA2000 : modeling lowland rice
ORYZA2000: modeling lowland rice is the successor to a series of (lowland) rice growth simulation models developed by IRRI and Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) in the early toExpand
Effect of water-saving irrigation on rice yield and water use in typical lowland conditions in Asia
Abstract With decreasing water availability for agriculture and increasing demand for rice, water use in rice production systems has to be reduced and water productivity increased. AlternatelyExpand
Rice production in water-scarce environments
Rice production in Asia needs to increase to feed a growing population. Though a complete assessment of the level of water scarcity in Asian rice production is still lacking, there are signs thatExpand
Rice and Water
The Comprehensive Assessment of Water Management in Agriculture (CA) seeks answers to the question of how freshwater resources can be developed and managed to feed the world's population and reduceExpand
Sea Level Rise Affecting the Vietnamese Mekong Delta: Water Elevation in the Flood Season and Implications for Rice Production
In this study, we assessed the impact of sea level rise, one of the most ascertained consequences of global climate change, for water levels in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD). We used a hydraulicExpand
Producing more rice with less water from irrigated systems
Over the past decade, we have witnessed a growing scarcity of and competition for water around the world. As the demand for water for domestic, municipal, industrial, and environmental purposes risesExpand
Nitrogen economy and water productivity of lowland rice under water-saving irrigation
Abstract Water saving in irrigated lowland rice production is increasingly needed to cope with a decreasing availability of fresh water. We investigated the effect of irrigation regimes on grainExpand
Effect of irrigation method and N-fertilizer management on rice yield, water productivity and nutrient-use efficiencies in typical lowland rice conditions in China
Alternate wetting and drying irrigation (AWD) has been reported to save water compared with continuous flooding (CF) in rice cultivation. However, the reported effects on yield varied greatly andExpand
Exploring options to grow rice using less water in northern China using a modelling approach: II. Quantifying yield, water balance components, and water productivity
Abstract Because of increasing competition for water, water-saving technologies such as alternate wetting and drying and aerobic rice are being developed to reduce water use while maintaining a highExpand
