From the Back Cover:

‘Rice feeds half the world population. Production of rice must continue to increase at the rate of one percent a year to maintain food security. This will require varieties with higher yield potential and better management practices. This collection summarizes the latest technologies for genetic improvement of rice and for its management under diverse environments. It will serve as standard reference for rice scientists.’ (Professor Gurdev Khush, University of California-Davis, USA; formerly the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), winner of the Japan Prize, the World Food Prize and the Wolf Prize)

Rice is one of the most important foods in the world. As the demand for rice continues to increase, there is an urgent need to increase yields in the face of such challenges as climate change, threats from pests and diseases and the need to make cultivation more resource-efficient and sustainable.
