Evaluating sustainable adaptation strategies for vulnerable mega-deltas using system dynamics modelling: Rice agriculture in the Mekong Delta's An Giang Province, Vietnam.
A new SD model is developed and test which simulates the dynamics between the farmers' economic system and their rice agriculture operations, and uniquely, integrates the role of fluvial sediment deposition within their dyke compartment, and is used to explore a range of alternative rice cultivation strategies.

Rice Blast: A Disease with Implications for Global Food Security
Understanding how rice blast is affected by environmental conditions at the cellular and genetic level will provide critical insight into incidence of the disease in future climates for effective decision-making and management. Expand
Consequences of Paddy Cultivation in Arsenic-Contaminated Paddy Fields of Lower Indo-Gangetic Plain on Arsenic Accumulation Pattern and Selected Grain Quality Traits: A Preliminary Assessment
Consequences of paddy cultivation in arsenic (As)-contaminated environment on crop growth, yield, and transmission to food chain through consumption of rice are known to all. Furthermore, the adverseExpand
Adaptive Mechanisms of Root System of Rice for Withstanding Osmotic Stress
Root, one of the major parts of plant, remains unnoticed although it has immense possibility of adaptation under stress conditions and this ultimately influences the yield stability of rice. Expand
