UN figures tell us that the demand for rice is expected to grow for many years into the future. Population growth in the Asia region alone over the next decade is projected to increase by over 30% on current population. Extra rice production is therefore crucial, and it is expected that there may well be increases in the area of agriculture land assigned for the rice crop, but definite increases in rice cropping density. Another very important pathway will be the transition to modern farming methods giving greater efficiency and increased crop yield. Because of the ever competing factors for land use (i.e. urbanisation, industrialisation, animal production), it is expected that the increase in rice supply must substantially come from increased yield and specialised crop nutrition practices together with an intensified cropping and irrigated rice ecosystem.
