Abstract:

This bulletin provides information on the challenges facing rice farming systems as well as some improvement strategies regarding irrigation management. The demands of rice farming include multi-utilization of farmland, better utilization efficiency of water resources, promotion of equipment efficiency, lowering of labour costs and maintenance of ecological functions. Due to these challenges, the introduction and promotion of new irrigation management systems is needed. Some of the recommendations described are: expansion of rice farming management scales (human resources, water resources and farmland resources); irrigation strategies during drought; and the application of multiple agricultural water resources.
