New book chronicles project’s success in increasing rice yields and farmers’ profitability in six Asian countries

 Rice Today   |  

The achievements of Closing Rice Yield Gaps in Asia (CORIGAP) in reaching hundreds of thousands of Asian farmers and raising their productivity have been compiled in the new book, Closing rice yield gaps. Accelerating sustainable progress.

The book serves as a guide on best management practices and climate-smart technologies for farmers, extension workers, and policymakers.

CORIGAP’s main goals were to reduce yield gaps to strengthen future food security and increase environmentally sustainable rice production in intensive lowland systems in China (Guangdong Province), Indonesia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The book was written to recount the implementation and changes brought in the six countries as well as the spillover effects in Cambodia and the Philippines.
