Studies similar to those reported in F.C.A. 16: 709 showed that rice cultivated under upland conditions had a higher water requirement (greater transpiration and less DM production) than under lowland (continuously flooded) conditions. This reduced efficiency of water usage has a bearing on the current interest in growing wet rice in traditional wet-paddy fields under upland conditions that allow direct-sowing and the use of other labour-saving machinery.
