Climate-Smart Rice Farming and Environment Smart Rice Farming are being used interchangeably to refer to the system of rice farming that sustainably increases productivity, enhances adaptive capacity and reduces greenhouse gas emissions where possible.
I was opportune to speak on “Environmental Impact of Chemical and Environmental Smart Rice Farming” at an online webinar by Sustainability Hub “Knowledge Session on Environmental Smart Rice Farming” supported by Share Yourself. These are some knowledge shared at the webinar am sure will interest you.
Rice farming today is faced with several agronomic and environmental challenges related to the intensification of crop production.
The deceleration in the growth of rice yields, soil depletion, growing water use, increasing water and air pollution as well as climate change are some of the most significant areas of concern.
Feeding people in decades to come will require ingenuity and innovation to produce more food on less land in more sustainable ways.
Climate change will exacerbate tight resource constraints by making weather more extreme and variable and decreasing average yields worldwide.
Population growth, changing diets, and land and water scarcity are long-term trends that threaten our shared vision of a more prosperous future. Well-fed people everywhere can achieve their full potential without damaging their environment.
