  • Basic Information of Rice Production Line

    The objective of a rice milling system is to remove the husk and the bran layers from paddy rice to produce whole white rice kernels that are sufficiently milled, free of impurities and contain a minimum number of broken kernels. The milling yield and quality of rice is dependent on the quality of the paddy, the milling equipment used and the skill of the mill operator. With the rapid ...

  • Predicting precipitation on nonpoint source pollutant exports in the source area of the Liao River, China

    The source area of the Liao River is an important grain growing area in China which experiences serious problems with agricultural nonpoint source pollution (NPS) which is impacting the regional economy and society. In order to address the water quality issues it is necessary to understand the spatial distribution of NPS in the Liao River source area. This issue has been investigated by ...

  • Procedure for rapid determination of δ15N and δ18O values of nitrate: development and application to an irrigated rice paddy watershed

    The dual isotope approach using the stable isotope ratios of nitrate nitrogen (δ15NNO3) and oxygen (δ18ONO3) is a strong tool for identifying the history of nitrate in various environments. Basically, a rapid procedure for determining δ15NNO3 and δ18ONO3 values is required to analyze many more samples quickly and thus save ...

  • CRISPR is coming to agriculture — with big implications for food, farmers, consumers and nature

    Gene editing offers dramatic advances in speed, scope and scale of genetic improvement. It also offers an opportunity for more nuanced GMO governance. Very few technologies truly merit the epithet “game changer” — but a new genetic engineering tool known as CRISPR-Cas9 is one of them. Since we first developed the ability to alter the genetic material inside a plant or animal in ...

  • Turning abandoned rice fields into mangroves

    What do you do when mangroves fail to naturally recolonise abandoned rice fields in one of the most precious mangrove deltas of the world? Pieter van Eijk reports on a recent mission to Western Africa that paves the way for large-scale mangrove recovery through a so-called ‘ecological restoration’ approach. ...

  • Assessing the regional food insecurity in Bangladesh due to irrigation water shortage in the Teesta catchment area

    Bangladesh is losing huge food production from the Teesta catchment area due to a lack of availability of irrigation water in the dry and lean period because of unilateral water withdrawal in the upstream country, India. The area, which is directly dependent on the irrigation water of the Teesta river, is the study area for this paper. The study reveals that rice production in Dalia, ...

  • Phytotoxicity of methylene blue to rice seedlings

    Methylene blue is widely used in various industrial branches. Due to insufficient treatment, its occurrence in wastewater is frequently detected, which may result in serious environment problems to aquatic organisms. Hydroponic experiments were conducted with rice seedlings (Oryza sativa L. cv. XZX 45) exposed to methylene blue to determine the effective concentration using relative growth rate ...

  • The optimization of the paddy field irrigation scheduling using mathematical programming

    In planting rice, a significant amount of irrigation water is required to prepare the farmlands and do transplanting and this is directly related to the number of machines and workers available; that is, the more the length of plowing and transplanting process due to the lack of required machinery and labor, the more the water volume consumed. Therefore, in such conditions, it is important to ...

  • A win for farmers and the environment

    Is it possible to reduce pesticide use without compromising crop yields? Yes — and then some, according to a new study published in the journal Insects. Researchers at the University of Essex in the United Kingdom measured pesticide use and crop yield at 85 project sites in 24 Asian and African countries practicing integrated pest management ...

  • Varietal differences in the growth of rice seedlings exposed to perchlorate and their antioxidative defense mechanisms

    A hydroponic experiment was conducted to investigate the perchlorate (ClO4‐) phytotoxicity in different rice varieties. Considerable variations were observed when 24 rice varieties were treated with ClO4‐. The shoot height, root length and biomass of most varieties were significantly reduced by ClO4‐. The roots were more sensitive than the shoots. Hierarchical clustering analysis demonstrated ...

  • Can grains of the past help us weather storms of the future?

    Combining science with traditional knowledge, researchers turn to ancient rice as a source of climate resilience In May 2009, Cyclone Aila wreaked havoc in eastern India. Clocking in at speeds of over 120 kilometers per hour, Aila hit the ...

  • Indian government still ‘flip flopping’ on GM trials

    In August, India’s ruling nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) stopped its legislators from accepting Monsanto sponsorship to attend a farm exhibition in the US state of Iowa. On the surface this might seem strange: attending the Farm Progress Show should be innocuous, as Monsanto routinely takes farmers, industry experts, media and MPs from various countries to visit the show and ...

  • Food security faces growing pest advance

    Coming soon to a farm near you: just about every possible type of pest that could take advantage of the ripening harvest in the nearby fields. By 2050, according to new research in the journal Global Ecology and Biogeography, those opportunistic viruses, bacteria, fungi, blights, ...

  • Dissipation and residues of trifloxystrobin and its metabolite in rice under field conditions

    Residue analysis of trifloxystrobin and its metabolite (CGA 321113) in rice matrices, paddy water, and soil was developed using the quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe (QuEChERS) method and high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC‐MS/MS). The method was used to evaluate the dissipation rate of trifloxystrobin and CGA 321113 in rice seedling, soil, and ...

  • Rice production with minimal irrigation and no nitrogen fertilizer by intensive use of treated municipal wastewater

    We designed a new cultivation system of rice with circulated irrigation to remove nitrogen from treated municipal wastewater effectively and assessed the possibility of nitrogen removal in the new system without any adverse effects on rice production through bench-scale experiments through two seasons. Overgrowth of the rice plant, which can lead to lodging and tasteless rice, was found in the ...

  • Lanthanum ions intervened in enzymatic production and elimination of reactive oxygen species in leaves of rice seedlings under cadmium stress

    Rare earth elements (REEs) at proper concentrations were observed to alleviate heavy metal stress. However, the potential mechanisms are not clear. Thus, the present work focused on the mechanisms of lanthanum (La) ions on the generation and elimination of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in leaves of rice seedlings hydroponically cultivated in 30 µM cadmium chloride (CdCl2) for two ...

  • India's Dangerous 'Food Bubble'

    India is now the world's third-largest grain producer after China and the United States. The adoption of higher-yielding crop varieties and the spread of irrigation have led to this remarkable tripling of output since the early 1960s. Unfortunately, a growing share of the water that irrigates three-fifths of India's grain harvest is coming from wells that are starting to go dry. This sets the ...

  • Science’s role in growing diverse, nutritious food

    Can science meet the demand for more diverse and nutritious food? Jan Piotrowski investigates. The riots that swept Africa in 2007 and 2008 in response to the spiralling costs of staple crops brought the effects of food shortages into sharp focus. Images of unrest circled the globe, and the consequent instability brought to the forefront of political debate a question that had ...

  • Microalgal oil production for use in rice farms in Albufera (València) region

    In the Albufera (València) region of Spain, rice has been farmed for nearly 500 years. Post-harvest flooding of rice fields has become an integral element of wetland refuge for migratory birds. The steady rise in the cost of purchased inputs is causing considerable economic stress to the viability of rice farming in this region. In 2011, it has been estimated the cost of purchased diesel ...
