Managing Water and Soils to Achieve Adaptation and Reduce Methane Emissions and Arsenic Contamination in Asian Rice Production | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 ** -- System of Rice Intensification |

This article in the journal Water reviews the current state of knowledge regarding the potential impacts of climate change on rice production and describes adaptation measures that involve soil and water management. ...Where feasible, replacing continuously flooded rice production with some form of aerobic rice production, will contribute to achieving adaptation objectives, while also reducing global warming potential and minimizing the risk of negative health impacts due to consumption of arsenic contaminated rice. [The article cites Indian Agricultural Research Institute data in which SRI plots produced a significantly higher grain yield, while reducing the global warming potential by about 38%.]
