A new double-cropping system proposed to overcome the instability of rice production in the Muda irrigation area of Malaysia



A new double-cropping system proposed to overcome the instability of rice production in the Muda irrigation area of Malaysia



Japanese Agricultural Research Quarterly 18(1): 60-68



A new double-cropping system for the Muda irrigation area (95 000 ha), where rice double-cropping has covered about 92% of the area since 1975, is presented. Av. rice yields were 3.27-5.70 t/ha in 1981. Major constraints to stable double-cropping of rice include problems of water supply, labour shortage, and damage by rice tungro disease (since 1981) and brown and green planthoppers (since 1973).
