Abstract
Abstract Yield decline resulting from continuous cropping of aerobic rice is a constraint to the widespread adoption of aerobic rice technology. Shifts in water management from flooded to aerobic conditions are known to influence the availability and form of N present in the soil and might require a different approach to N management in aerobic rice. The present study was conducted to determine the effects of different N sources on the plant growth and grain yield of aerobic rice. Four pot experiments were conducted in which rice was aerobically grown in soil that was taken from fields where aerobic rice has been cultivated for 11 consecutive seasons and an adjacent field where flooded rice has been grown continuously. Nitrogen was applied as ammonium sulfate, urea, ammonium chloride, ammonium nitrate and potassium nitrate at four N rates of 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 and 1.2 g N pot−1. Two unfertilized controls consisting of soil that was either untreated or oven heated at 120°C for 12 h were also included. Plants we...

Yield decline is a major constraint in the adoption of monocropping of aerobic rice. The causes of the yield decline in the continuous aerobic rice system are still unknown. The objective of this study was to determine if nutrient application can mitigate the yield decline caused by continuous cropping of aerobic rice. Micro-plot experiment was conducted in 2005 dry season (DS) in a field where aerobic rice has been grown continuously for eight seasons from 2001 DS at the International Rice Rese...

“Aerobic rice” system is the cultivation of nutrient-responsive cultivars in nonflooded and nonsaturated soil under supplemental irrigation. It is intended for lowland areas with water shortage and for favorable upland areas with access to supplementary irrigation. Yield decline caused by soil sickness has been reported with continuous monocropping of aerobic rice grown under nonflooded conditions. The objective of this study was to determine the growth response of rice plant to oven heating of ...

The Comprehensive Assessment of Water Management in Agriculture (CA) seeks answers to the question of how freshwater resources can be developed and managed to feed the world's population and reduce poverty, while at the same time promoting environmental security. The CA pays particular attention to rice as this crop is the most common staple food of the largest number of people on Earth (about 3 billion people) while receiving an estimated 24–30% of the world's developed freshwater resources. Ri...

Abstract Yield penalty and yield stability of aerobic rice have to be considered before promoting this water-saving technology in the tropics. The objectives of this study were (1) to compare crop performance between aerobic and flooded rice continuously over several seasons, and (2) to identify yield attributes responsible for the yield gap between aerobic and flooded rice. Field experiments were conducted at the International Rice Research Institute farm in dry and wet seasons. Grain yield and...

ABSTRACT Decreasing fresh water availability has intensified the search for alternative rice cultivation systems with reduced water input, but most evidence suggests negative effects on growth of lowland (LL) rice cultivars. Yield in such production systems may be improved by selection of adapted aerobic ‘Han Dao’ (HD) rice cultivars. Lowland and HD rice were compared under sole nitrate or ammonium supply as well as under mixed supply of both nitrogen (N) forms during the seedling and tillering ...

Like elsewhere in the Sahel, actual rice yields (3–5 t ha−1) are far below yield potential (±8 t ha−1) in an irrigation scheme in central southern Mauritania. Earlier studies showed that yields are especially low on alkaline soils due to N and P deficiency. We investigated the potential of rice straw application as a mean to improve yields and fertilizer efficiency on an alkaline soil (pH 8.2) and a pH-neutral soil (pH 6.2). Application of 5 t straw ha−1 increased yields by 1.1 t ha−1 on average...

Irrigated ‘aerobic rice’ is a new system being developed for lowland areas with water shortage and for favorable upland areas with access to supplementary irrigation. It entails the cultivation of nutrient-responsive cultivars in nonsaturated soil with sufficient external inputs to reach yields of 70–80% of high-input flooded rice. To obtain insights into crop performance, water use, and N use of aerobic rice, a field experiment was conducted in the dry seasons of 2002 and 2003 in the Philippine...

Abstract Since the late 1990s, aerobic rice varieties have been released to farmers in the North China Plain to grow rice as a supplementary-irrigated upland crop to cope with water scarcity. Little is known about their yield potential, water use, water productivity (WP), and flood tolerance. In 2001–2002, experiments with aerobic rice varieties HD502 and HD297 and lowland rice variety JD305 were conducted under aerobic and flooded conditions. Under aerobic conditions, five irrigation treatments...

Abstract As an alternative production strategy, the cultivation of rice under upland condition is increasing in the areas where fresh water resource is limited during growing season. The main form of nitrogen (N) taken up by rice roots is shifted from ammonium (NH4) in flooded paddy soil to nitrate ( ) in upland soil. A pot experiment was conducted in order to study the influence of to ratio on the yield and uptake of N by rice (Oryza sativa L.) grown under upland conditions. The sandy-loam soil...

Rice production in Asia needs to increase to feed a growing population. Though a complete assessment of the level of water scarcity in Asian rice production is still lacking, there are signs that declining quality of water and declining availability of water resources are threatening the sustainability of the irrigated rice-based production system. Drought is one of the main constraints for high yield in rain-fed rice. Exploring ways to produce more rice with less water is essential for food sec...

Abstract Meeting the challenge of feeding a growing population with limited resources will require increasing the yield potential of staple crops, such as rice. Yet many high-yielding, intensive production systems have experienced slow rates of yield improvement in recent years despite a demonstrated increase in the yield potential of new crop cultivars. We analyzed experimental data from one such cropping system, i.e., California (CA) rice, in order to quantify improvements made in the genetic ...

Abstract Replacement of puddled transplanted rice (PTR) by dry seeded rice (DSR) can potentially reduce consumption of resources and decrease emissions of greenhouse gases while maintaining grain yields in central China. However, dry seeding has not been widely adopted in this region. This review was undertaken to better understand the problems and opportunities for replacing PTR with DSR in central China. The performance of DSR in comparison with PTR is reviewed with regard to crop performance,...

Soil-related obstacles resulting from continuous monoculture have limited the sustainable development of the tomato industry in China. An experiment on tomatoes with seven continuous monoculture treatments (the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, and 13th crops, respectively) was conducted in a solar greenhouse, to investigate the influence of monoculture on soil quality. Most soil quality indicators first increased and then decreased with increasing continuous monoculture crops, and significant diff...

Phenotypic plasticity in overcoming heat stress-induced damage across hot tropical rice-growing regions is predominantly governed by relative humidity. Expression of transpiration cooling, an effective heat-avoiding mechanism, will diminish with the transition from fully flooded paddies to water-saving technologies, such as direct-seeded and aerobic rice cultivation, thus further aggravating stress damage. This change can potentially introduce greater sensitivity to previously unaffected develop...

Soil sickness, a phenomenon of negative plant-soil feedback in continuous monocropping systems, can cause severe yield penalty in agricultural production. Changes in soil chemical and biological characters are thought to account for soil sickness. However, changes in soil properties in continuous monocropping systems and links between these changes and plant growth performance are still not clear. In this study, dynamics of soil chemical characters and enzyme activities were monitored in a conti...
