Traditional lowland rice production in Asia requires much water: it consumes more than 50% of all irrigation water used in the region. Water resources are, however, increasingly getting scarce and expensive. There is a need to develop alternative rice production systems that require less water and increase water productivity. In the last decade(s), researchers have studied and developed a number of water-saving irrigation technologies. Although these technologies have been demonstrated to save… CONTINUE READING
