Research Project Aims to Double Rice Production in Africa
Friday, 2013/06/28 | 08:04:32

A research project aimed to help achieve the goal of the Coalition for African Rice Development (CARD) to 'double African rice production in the next decade' is being implemented by Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS). The flagship project comprises three particular research subjects: (1) development of new breeding lines obtained by evaluating and improving the existing genetic resources of upland and lowland rice that are suitable for African field conditions; (2) development of a low life cycle cost paddy technology, an Asian-type rice cultivation system, and a paddy field model suitable for African conditions; and (3) expansion of rice cultivation in areas which used to be flood plains.

 

Likewise, efforts are underway to build a framework for cooperation or launch a joint research project so that the governments concerned or the international organizations can utilize the outputs of this research with full confidence for their own projects, investigations, and extension promotions
