Abstract

In most rainfed drought-prone environments, water shortages constrain farm productivity toward the end of the season for the wet-season rice crop and/or for a second crop after rice. Dry seeding, instead of transplanting rice, may help solve this problem. Dry-seeded rice can be established and harvested earlier, with a reduced risk of drought to the crop and, at the same time, leave a longer favorable period for growing a postrice crop. Recent research has established the prospects of dry-seeded rice-based farming systems in drought-prone environments of various countries, including the Philippines and Bangladesh. This paper summarizes some of that research conducted within the auspices of the Rainfed Lowland Rice Research Consortium (RLRRC), a regional research network coordinated by IRRI. Some common issues that deserve further investigation are discussed.
