Rice: agricultural biotechnology © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

The biotechnology approach for methane mitigation technology involves identification of rice cultivars which emit less methane. It also involves the tailoring of plants which translocate less...

Rice: alternate wetting and drying © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in the Philippines has developed a new mitigation technology for methane known as alternate wetting and drying (AWD) (IRRI, 2009). AWD is a...

Rice: chemical fertiliser amendment © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Emissions of GHGs are affected by the amounts and types of fertilisers applied, so judicious choice of fertiliser application rates and fertiliser types can reduce emissions. Rice cultivation is...

Rice: direct seeding © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Pre-germinated seeds or seedlings are directly planted in soil or broadcast in flooded field under this technology. Rice cultivation is responsible for 10% of GHG emissions from agriculture. In...

Rice: electron acceptors © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Addition of electron acceptors, such as ferrihydrite, to paddy fields can stimulate microbial populations that compete with and slow the activity of methanogens, thereby reducing emissions of...

Rice: fertiliser, manure and straw management © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Fertiliser and manure management in rice fields are important methane mitigation technologies. The fertiliser management mitigation option includes changes in: fertiliser types; fertiliser...

Rice: mid-season drainage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Mid-season drainage involves the removal of surface flood water from the rice crop for about seven days towards the end of tillering. The duration of the dry period must be long enough for rice...

Rice: potassium fertiliser application © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Fertilisation with muriate of potash (MOP) can significantly reduce emissions of methane from flooded soils planted with rice. Rice cultivation is responsible for 10% of GHG emissions from...

Rice: reduced tillage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

For upland crops, reduced tillage technology for paddy rice involves planting or transplanting directly into the soil with minimal prior tillage in the residues of the preceding crop. Rice...

Solar dryer © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Traditional methods of food drying is to spread the foodstuffs to place the foodstuffs in the sun in the open air. This method, called sun drying, is effective for small amounts of food. The area...
