Climate Smart Rice

16. december 2015 lectures, plant science, science
Rice is the primary source of food for billions of people, especially in Asia, and production is expected to continue to increase. Most rice is grown in flooded systems that produce large amounts of greenhouse gases, especially methane and nitrous oxide. But how do you entice small farmers to worry about greenhouse gases? And how do you convince them to grow rice in a different way?

Lecturer: Professor Andreas de Neergaard from the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, University of Copenhagen.
