The great challenge for the future will be the task of increasing food production with less water, particularly in countries with limited water and land resources. In the context of improving water productivity, there is a growing interest in "deficit irrigation" - an irrigation practice whereby water supply is reduced below maximum levels and mild stress is allowed with minimal effects on yield. This publication presents a range of studies, carried out for several crops and under different ecological conditions, showing the various options and practices of deficit irrigation and the impacts o

Rice yields need to increase in order to keep pace with the growing population of Asia and to alleviate hunger and poverty. There appears, however, to be a biophysical limit associated with conventional photosynthetic pathways. The research presented in this book aims at understanding how the rice plant's photosynthetic pathway could be redesigned to overcome current yield limits. The factors controlling yield are discussed from the agronomic to the molecular level. Prospects for improving rice photosynthesis include using genetic engineering to convert rice into a C4 plant. The various chapt

The principal objective of a recent workshop was to explore the possibilities for increasing yield in rice, to keep pace with population growth, by redesigning the rice plant’s photosynthetic pathway. IRRI scientists wanted to establish at what level they should work on this problem, what are the key areas into which they should channel their energies, and, crucially, what partnerships could be constructed to further this research. Participants, including internationally renowned experts on the topic, discussed whether the inefficiencies in current photosynthetic systems could be
