Almost 20 million hectares of the world's rice land are planted to upland or dryland rice. But yields are low, accounting for only 5 % of world production, and modern technology has scarcely affected such production. Because research on upland rice has been limited, the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) recently requested all its associated research centres to increase such activities and to develop a global strategy for upland rice improvement. In response to this appeal, the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) initiated an upland rice training programme whose coordinators subsequently produced a comprehensive digest of upland rice research and production based on existing information and their own extensive experience.
