Recent research has challenged the traditional concept of keeping ricefields flooded throughout the cropping season. We conducted a glasshouse experiment to investigate the limit to which rice plants can be water-stressed without incurring significant yield losses. Our aim was to find ways to lessen the amount of water needed for irrigating rice.
