Global rice production systems face two opposing challenges: the need to increase production to accommodate the world's growing population while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Adaptations to drainage regimes are one of the most promising options for methane mitigation in rice production. Whereas several studies have focused on mid-season drainage (MD) to mitigate GHG emissions, early-season drainage (ED) varying in timing and duration has not been extensively studied… Expand
Optimal drainage timing for mitigating methane emissions from rice paddy fields
Abstract While rice production may need to increase to keep pace with the growing demand, efficient and sustainable management is needed to mitigate methane emissions from rice paddy fields, whichExpand
Paddy soil drainage influences residue carbon contribution to methane emissions.
A direct link between early drainage and reduced CH4 emissions from incorporated crop residues is demonstrated, eventually leading to a reduction in total global warming potential and accelerated decomposition of the residues during early season drainage prolonged the reduction inCH4 emissions.

Water management to mitigate the global warming potential of rice systems: A global meta-analysis
Abstract Rice is a main staple food for roughly half of the world’s population, but rice agriculture is also a main source of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Many studies have reportedExpand

Water management practices, such as midseason drainage (MD) and intermittent irrigation, are effective in reducing methane (CH4) emission from irrigated rice paddies. In a previous study in whichExpand
Fertilizer management practices and greenhouse gas emissions from rice systems: A quantitative review and analysis
Abstract Flooded rice systems emit both methane (CH 4 ) and nitrous oxide (N 2 O). Elevated CH 4 emissions in rice systems can lead to a high global warming potential (GWP) relative to other crops,Expand
Investigating options for attenuating methane emission from Indian rice fields.
It appears from this investigation that there can be more than one strategy to contain methane emission from paddy fields, which are thought to be a major source of methane emission in tropical Asia. Expand
Mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from rice production through water-saving techniques: potential, adoption and empirical evidence.
Flooded rice fi elds are a large anthropogenic source of the greenhouse gas (GHG) methane (CH4). Aeration of the paddy fi eld can reduce methane emissions and at the same time save water. Diff erentExpand
Mitigation of methane and nitrous oxide emissions from drained irrigated rice fields.
It was found that drainage during the flowering period could reduce methane emission and nitrous oxide emission was related to number of drain days rather than the frequency of draining, and field drainage can be used as an option to reduce methane andNitrous oxide emissions from rice fields with acceptable yield reduction.
