Aerobic rice (non- flooded, well-irrigated) has been proposed to improve water productivity and with the appropriate development of adapted genotypes and management practices, the yield may approach that of flooded production methods.
Aerobic rice is a production system in which especially developed “aerobic rice” varieties are grown in well-drained, non-puddled, and non-saturated soils. With a good management, the system aims for yields of at least 4-6 tons per hectare.
