PHYS_ORG 30/05/19 Colombia could lose 60% of land suitable for irrigated rice due to climate change. Without significant global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, Colombia will have 60 percent less land suitable for rice production by the 2050s, according to a new study by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).

PHYS_ORG 30/05/19 Colombia could lose 60% of land suitable for irrigated rice due to climate change

Due primarily to increased temperatures and decreased rainfall—as opposed to sea-level rise, which is the driver of projected change to rice production in some Asian countries—the research shows suitable conditions will need to be found at higher elevations when low-altitude fields are too hot or dry for irrigated rice production. The study found that Colombia's suitable arable land for rice is currently 4.4 million hectares but could be reduced to 1.8 million hectares in a few decades. Mitigation could require complex decisions around land-use change, changes in crop cultivation, and food security, said the authors. Mitigate quickly More information: F.

The analysis reduces an initial set of 28 variables to 11 based on VIF values below 10. We eliminated precipitation in the driest quarter, percent silt in the soil and precipitation of the wettest month because they contributed little to the model (< 5%). Three of the eight remaining variables explained a substantial part of the distribution—accumulated precipitation during the months of August, September, and October (31%), followed by annual range of temperature (26%) and then by average temperature during the wettest quarter (12.4%).

Two variables accounted for low yet important levels of variance—precipitation of the driest month (8.6%) and precipitation of the coldest quarter (8.3%). The model performed well in general.

While climate change has played a role in the declining success of the notoriously sensitive plant, water level and flow management by humans has played a part, too. The damming and water management regime of Rainy Lake and its water system over the decades has been a major contributing factor to the decline of wild rice, or manoomin (as it’s known in Ojibwe), with successful harvests only occurring twice over the past 13 years, according to Allan Yerxa, lands and resources coordinator for the Couchiching First Nation.

Rainy Lake is linked to Namakan Lake, and further downstream, Lake of the Woods. Water levels on the lakes are managed through a series of dams. Operators are required to try and keep water levels within a band known as the rule curves, with oversight by the IJC’s Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Board. More difficult to plan for is climate change. CURRENT SCIENCE, VOL. 102, NO. 9, 10 MAY 2012 Impact of climate change on weeds in the rice–wheat cropping system.

"Climate change endangers crop and livestock yields and the health of fisheries and forests at the very same time that surging populations worldwide are placing new demands on food production," said Bruce Campbell of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). "These clashing trends challenge us to transform our agriculture systems so they can sustainably deliver the food required to meet our nutritional needs and support economic development, despite rapidly shifting growing conditions.

The nation’s policy makers must therefore take mitigation and adaptation measures to ensure that the agriculture sector is not ravaged by the effects of climate change. Climate change watchers at a Media forum in Koforidua on Friday, who made this known, indicated that climate change brought about drought, floods as well as depletion of aquifers, which guarantee underground water. Mr Ronald Abrahams, of the Water Resources Commission (WRC), said while industrialised or developed countries used more water in their industrial production, poor countries including Ghana used more water for agricultural purposes.

He said currently the world was faced with water crisis where groundwater over drafting was leading to diminished agricultural yields. Source: GNA.

Based on the assumption that only rice is affected by global warming, this study examines the impact of global warming on regional economies based on the spillover effects from other agricultural products and the industrial sector having an input–output relationship with agriculture. Our findings show that global warming-induced climate change has different impacts on each region, and it creates regional economic disparities. For example, global warming has a positive impact on regional economies in Hokkaido and Tohoku.

ARSTECHNICA 09/01/17 Future rice yield losses due to climate change could be extreme

Rice yields depend on numerous factors, such as agricultural practices, but they also depend on the temperature at which the crop is grown. Previous studies have shown that temperatures above rice's optimum physiological temperature can reduce crop yield. As a result, the International Food Policy Research Institute has stated that the effects of rising temperatures from climate change would likely reduce rice yield by 10 percent by 2050. This could have dramatic impacts across the world, as hunger and malnutrition are already significant problems.

Researchers in Ronald's plant genetics lab starved the grasses of water for more than a week. The ones on the right, the control in the ongoing experiment, are yellowing and collapsing. The leaves in the adjacent plants, equipped with an added gene, are thick, tall, and green. The hope is that these or similar genetic alterations could help rice and other crops survive devastating droughts, preventing food shortages in some of the poorest parts of the world. Ronald, a trim scientist with short brown hair, smiles as she looks down at the early results.

NATURE 14/11/19 Rice life cycle-based global mercury biotransport and human methylmercury exposure. Mercury accumulation in rice plants and human exposure In this study, we found that rice plants contributed a significant amount to the global anthropogenic biovectors of Hg (Figs. 1 and 2, Supplementary Figs. 1–8 and Supplementary Data 1–3). Globally, 5.3 (4.0–7.0 interquartile range from the Monte Carlo simulation) Mg of THg and 1.8 (1.5–2.2) Mg of MeHg in rice grain were harvested from terrestrial ecosystems in 2016, a substantial increase from 1.3 and 0.46 Mg, respectively, in 1961. In addition, 180 (89–360) Mg of THg and 1.7 (0.71–4.2) Mg of MeHg in rice residues were generated; both these values significantly increased from 69 and 0.66 Mg, respectively, in 1961. In contrast, 13 Mg of THg (including the edible and inedible fractions in seafood) were exported from the ocean via marine fisheries in 201421.

EQUAL TIMES 06/03/20 Can rice survive climate change? Every June, Thailand’s fields fill with millions of farmers as they begin to plant rice, the foundation of the country’s diet. In 2015, however, the land was so dry that the government asked them to postpone the start of the season and to refrain from growing a second crop during the winter. Production fell by 15 per cent that year and it took two years for the world’s second largest rice exporter to return to former production levels.

Thailand is not the only country where rice is threatened by the changes in rainfall and temperature patterns linked to the climate emergency. In Vietnam, rising sea levels are increasing soil salinity to such an extent that the paddy fields will no longer be productive. In West Bengal, in eastern India, drought and flooding are already causing recurrent crop failures.
