Measuring the impact of water-saving technologies on rice pests and the environment


Mr. Jerico Stefan R. Bigornia
Assistant Scientist
Climate Change Group



Abstract: The ongoing shift in agricultural change (labor and water scarcity) will favor the development of water saving technologies like direct seeded rice (DSR) and alternate wetting and drying technology (AWD). The technologies will have an effect on the importance of crop health problems in rice paddies. A series of on-farm trials and surveys was conducted to analyze how water saving technologies will influence rice crop health and the potential environmental risk associated with pesticide application.
