UMD 4 : Evaluating Varieties of Rice Adapted to Lowland Rainfed Conditions in Central Myanmar

A Farmer Participatory Approach

Owing to traditional farming techniques and uneven rainfall, rice productivity in the central dry zone of Myanmar is low, especially in areas with inherent low soil fertility. Rice production—integral to the socio-cultural and economic lives of the people—is becoming ever more challenging and the people of the area live with constant insecurity and vulnerability. This research is a broad effort to help the farmers of Central Myanmar improve their rice production by reducing production costs and maintaining sustainable, stable yield through adverse environmental conditions.
