Patterns of adoption of improved rice varieties and farm-level impacts in stress-prone rainfed areas in South Asia

Patterns of adoption of improved rice varieties and farm-level impacts in stress-prone rainfed areas in South Asia

S. Pandey, D. Gauchan, M. Malabayabas, M. Bool-Emerick, B. Hardy

Widespread and persistent poverty in Asia is a longstanding problem, particularly in rainfed ecosystems. Rice is dominant in these areas because it is the only crop that can be grown in the wet season.

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.
