Lowland rice areas lack water supply and/or water control for irrigation. As a result, they are more subject to flooding and drought than irrigated production areas. Salinity can be a problem in coastal areas where sea water submerges the rice production area but irrigation water is unavailable for salt removal. Different varieties and management systems are used compared to the irrigated ecosystem.Availability and control of water helps reduce the risk of crop failure. As a result, farmers are willing to apply more purchased inputs like fertilizers typically resulting in higher yields. These and other factors help make the irrigated rice ecosystem the most productive. About 75% of the world’s annual rice production comes from irrigated land.Some factors limiting yield in irrigated rice production include inadequate irrigation water, poor management of production inputs, and losses due to weeds, insects, diseases,Rotary Weeder, Lowland Rice, Herbicides, Weeds, rice production, weed management, yields, farmer, Jonne Rodenburg, R.Raman, AfricaRice, Africa Rice Center,
