      Nearly million people now depend on upland rice as their daily staple food. Almost two-thirds of the upland rice area is in Asia. Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Northeastern India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Nepal, and Vietnam are important producers. Upland rice is grown in rainfed fields prepared and seeded when dry, much like wheat or. • Rice does best in soils with good water retention capacities, e.g. clay soils with high organic matter. • The optimum pH is but lowland rice can be grown in soils with pH values in the range • Amount of rainfall required is about mm per month for lowland and mm for upland rice.

      Upland rice production accounts for 20% of the total rice produced in Nigeria. With the development of New Rice for Africa (NERICA) for upland production systems, a number of farmers have shown interest in growing upland rice. Unfortunately, these farmers do not have a ready source of information on upland rice production. Faculty of Agriculture, Kochi University, Japan (33°55ʹ N, °68ʹ E) in and During both years, four varieties were used, namely NERICA 1 (upland rice, non-glutinous), NERICA 5 (upland rice, non-glutinous), Yumenohatamochi (Japanese upland rice, glutinous), and Hinohikari (Japanese lowland rice, non-glutinous).

      Book-Keeping Method: Direct seeding requires drainage of the rice fields at sowing time. In Japan, intermittent irrigation and drainage is practised in paddy fields. The application of the water balance equation has to be considered separately for lowland paddy and upland irrigated crops as the dynamics of waterflows is somewhat.   Some popular varieties of rice grown in Nigeria are Upland rice, Lowland rice, and Fadama rice. It is important that you manually chose your rice to prevent choosing an unhealthy type. If you need recommendations on the varieties of rice to plant, then you should visit any International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) nearest to you.

Archaeobotanical evidence indicates that cultivation took place in a range of lowland and upland contexts, using high-water-table, floodwater, mesa top run-off, or rain-fed techniques.

Rice includes both lowland and upland rice, the latter accounting for nearly 40% of the total rice area. While the yield of upland rice is generally low, new upland varieties, called NERICA, are high yielding in some areas in SSA (e.g., Uganda; Kijima et al.

The dominant rice cropping systems in Cameroon are irrigated and lowland rainfed agriculture. The main question addressed in this book is "What are the potentialities of Southern Cameroon for upland rice production?" In this study, land evaluation was used to assess the suitability of Southern Cameroon for rice : Solange Meka.

However, inupland farming area reached 42% of the total arable land, about 6 million ha. The total area planted to upland farm crops. grown, the rice environment can be classifiedinto irrigated lowland rice (79 million ha), rainfed low-land rice (54 million ha), flood-pronerice (11 mil-lion ha), and upland rice (14 million ha).

Lowland rice is also called “paddy rice.” Lowland rice fields have saturated (anaerobic) soil conditions with pon. The advantage of lowland rice over upland rice can be found in the nutrient omission trials carried out throughout the country before chemical fertilizer was prevailed.

As shown in Figure 1, N was the most limiting element for both lowland and upland rice. For lowland rice, however, the percentage of yield loss caused by the omission of fertilizers differed with the growth conditions; 22 and 47% under field.

Rainfed lowland systems have rice direct seeded in puddle soil on level, slightly sloping, or diked (i.e., bunded) fields. The depth and duration of flooding is dependent on local rainfall, so the system is subject to yield fluctuations.

The difference between this approach and the upland pluvial rice cultivation is solely one of topography. Area was carried out. A total of rice farmers were interviewed (56 from upland rice and 56 from lowland rice) in the study area using multistage random sampling techniques.

farmers to initiate farming in upland areas (Belsky and Siebert, ). The expansion of land for raising sugarcane in the western Visayas from to was also primarily at the expense of small-scale upland rice and maize production (Luning, ). The smallholder upland rice production program has benefit-ed from funding by the JICA since Year This Handbook, from outset, was designed as an extension and training tool for the rural devel-opment officers whose work has been to support smallholder rice farmers and growers in upland rice production development.

Different rice ecosystems have different land preparation requirements. Lowland rice fields, for example, are usually puddled to develop a hard pan and reduce water loss. Upland ricefields, on the other hand, do not necessarily have to be puddled.

In resource-limiting Missing: Japan. The lowland rice environment in West Africa is extremely complex. The potential for production oflowland rice is much higher than that for upland ecologies, presenting the possibility of cultivating two ormore crops annually.

Lowland rice therefore becomes a more economically valuable crop than upland gh rice consumption in African countries has increased in recent.Farmers growing rainfed rice, upland and lowland alike, cultivated on average 2 ha of farm land, of which one-third ( ha) was planted to rice, and the sizes of cultivated area and rice planted.lowland, rainfed lowland, and upland; accounting for approximat 19, and 4% of global rice production, respectively1).

Therefore, the contribution of upland rice to global rice production is not as great as that of low-land rice. However, in Asia, where more than 90% of the world’s rice is produced, upland rice remains an important.
