Boost rice production through system of rice intensification
Akhilesh Vishwkarma, AL Jat, Chhagan Lal and J Padmavathi
Rice (<em>Oryza sativa</em> L.) is the staple food for nearly half of the world’s population and most of them living in developing countries. To meet the demand of increasing population of India along with its changing habits and maintain self-sufficiency, the present production level needs to be increased. This has to be done against the backdrop of declining natural resources base such as land, water, labour and other inputs and without adversely affecting the quality of environment. Hence, there is an urgent need to adopt some innovative techniques that could reduce the use of costly input and increase land productivity and water use efficiency so that rice can grow profitably. Among the available technique/ management options to enhance rice production and productivity, hybrid rice and system of rice intensification are the most practically feasible and readily adoptable options.
