Sustaining food security for rainfed ecosystems in Asia



Sustaining food security for rainfed ecosystems in Asia



Asia Pacific Journal of Rural Development 6(1): 1-22



Since 1966 when the release of IR-8 triggered the Green Revolution in humid and subhumid tropics in Asia, rice production has increased at 2.4% per year, faster than the rate of population growth. It is argued that the challenge to sustaining food security in Asia will be particularly difficult for the countries with a large proportion of area under favourable rice growing environments.
