Abstract:

Rice is one of the most important food crops that feed over half of the global population and biggest consumer of fresh water diverted from irrigation. Water scarcity is burning issue of agriculture, outcome of climate change and unpredictable rainfall. It threatens the future of irrigated rice cultivation. Researchers developed new technology called “Aerobic Rice” to cope up with present situation. Rice is grown in well-drained, non-puddled and non-saturated soils. Aerobic rice cultivar has drought tolerance capacity as well as yield potentiality. Aerobic rice can save about 50% of irrigation water in comparison to lowland rice. To overcome increasing water scarcity problem, this is better choice for both present and future.
