Discussion Paper Series (51)

The IRRI Discussion Paper Series is a flexible means for IRRI scientists to share information with specialized institutions and individuals. It is intended to be a fast means of presenting plans for new research or preliminary results of research still in progress, but which could be of immediate use for others. The series also contains special project reports, consortia, and network reports, reports of meetings or workshops (short of the actual proceedings), workshop recommendations, and similar.

Direct Seeding of Rice and Weed Management in the Irrigated Rice- Wheat Cropping System of the Indo-Gangetic Plains

Y. Singh, V.P. Singh, B. Chauhan, A. Orr, A.M. Mortimer, D.E. Johnson, B. Hardy

To take stock of the present knowledge on direct seeding of rice, a workshop was organized at Pantnagar. Papers presented in this workshop covered the major aspects of rice production—methods of rice establishment, weeds and weed management in different cropping systems, water management, varieties suited to direct seeding, rice quality, and socioeconomic issues.

Drought Frontiers in Rice: Crop Improvement for Increased Rainfed Production

Drought Frontiers in Rice: Crop Improvement for Increased Rainfed Production

R. Serraj, J. Bennett, B. Hardy

The Frontier Project on Drought-Resistant Rice will scale up gene detection and delivery for use in marker-aided breeding. The development of high-throughput, high-precision phenotyping systems will allow genes for component traits to be efficiently mapped, and their effects assessed on a range of drought-related traits, moving the most promising genes into widely-grown rice mega-varieties.
