Greenhouse Gas Mitigation in Irrigated Rice Systems in Asia (MIRSA)


The project on Greenhouse gas Mitigation in Irrigated Rice Systems in Asia (MIRSA) seeks to develop an improved water management, based on alternate wetting and drying (AWD), that can always reduce soil-derived CO2-eq emissions (CH4 + N2O) during the rice growing season from irrigated rice paddies, by 30% compared to the conventional practice.
