The Special Section ‘Frontline research in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from paddy fields’, which contains 10 original papers, has been published online by the Soil Science and Plant Nutrition (SSPN), in association with the GRA’s Paddy Rice Group, Partners and Affiliates.
View online here Preface: Paddy fields are recognized to be a major anthropogenic source of atmospheric methane (CH emitted globally from paddy fields, mitigation of emissions from this source is very important in order to stabilize its atmospheric concentration.
He has been working on rice genetics and breeding since 1983, focusing on rice genetic materials creation, molecular mechanism dissection of important agronomy traits and molecular application.
He has been awarded two national prizes for Natural Science and Scientific and Technological Progress in 20 respectively, received 25 patents authorized in China, and published more than 100 scientific papers.
Also, it is necessary to improve the sharing of knowledge of the mitigation options among researchers and other stakeholders, such as policy makers and land users, in different regions of the world.
These endeavors are particularly crucial to set up nationally appropriate mitigation actions for rice producing countries, in order to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and meet the 2016 Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
These workshops represented the different production systems found in these two regions and were supported by the Asia and America regional sub-Groups of the Paddy Rice Research Group respectively.
These workshops included expert presentations on a wide range of topics from mitigation through water saving techniques (Alternate Wetting and Drying-AWD) to country-specific experiences, capacity-building training on rice management technologies, and field training.
journal line-up is to impact readers with a broad spectrum of subject matter in all the fields related to rice science.
Journal provides a novel way to disseminate the latest findings in basic and translational research in the field and to facilitate communication, both among scientists as well as the production community.
